Back in the day, news people made choice by deciding which stories to write. Today, we have to adopt a similar rigor about what we choose to share and amplify. In sharing (on Twitter or even re-blogging) we are sending the same message as doing an original news report. […] by being deliberate about it, we are essentially “editing” and telling the world: “this is how I see the world/this particular beat”.
