CNN in the Age of Twitter

July 21, 2009

This just in from tapmag, who has wrapped up hosting a student seminar with a ton of great guests from the media world at Free University Berlin. In their last sessions, Frederik Pleitgen of CNN Germany joined them.

“It’s futile for us to even try and compete with the Internet as far as speed is concerned,” says Frederik Pleitgen, correspondent for CNN in Germany. Last week, we welcomed him as our final guest to our seminar “Reporting America,” a student-run seminar we organized at the Free University.

Pleitgen reviewed articles submitted by seminar participants to iReport.

He also took the time to talk about his experience as a CNN reporter on assignment in Germany, Burma, Iraq and elsewhere.

We gladly took the chance to ask him some questions about the future of 24h news channels in the digital age. Check out the interview by tapmag.
