Boss to reporters, editors: Get off Twitter

According to the Gannett Blog, an editor at the Gannett newspaper company recently told his underlings to avoid social network sites. Here's a bit of the alleged newsroom memo:

It has come to my attention that some staff members are spending a lot of time on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites during work hours. Also, some staff members apparently are spending work time on Fantasy baseball research and other personal recreation activities. This is not appropriate. It is not part of the job.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. While it's true that fantasy baseball leagues aren't exactly work-appropriate, Twitter certainly is. How many stories (warning: adult language) have been broken over the last few months through Twitter alone? We'll give you a hint: you'll need more than ten fingers.
