Should News Outlets Use Twitter

How Do You Feel About News Outlets Pimping Their Twitter?

So here's the thing: I like to follow news sources on Twitter to get news updates and alerts, but I think it's kinda weird when they incorporate and pimp their Twitter on their newscast.

A station here in SF literally has a whole segment dedicated to Twitter @replies and asks viewers to "send in their Twitters" to the station. I love how tech is being used more and more in everyday life, but I just think that sometimes it can get a little too in your face. Remember when Ashton raced CNN to a million followers? Who could forget, right?

Am I totally off-base here, or do you agree that reputable news outlets should use Twitter to relay news, and not use it to try and make news? How do you feel about news outlets pimping their Twitter?
