From Charlie Hebdo to the Baltimore protests to the Nepal earthquake, news in 2015 has largely unfolded on social media. Newsrooms of all sizes have been working through the challenges and workflows of breaking social newsgathering since the Arab Spring and Boston marathon bombings, some even building specialized teams. We share their war stories, workflows, best practices and ethical dilemmas working at the speed of bits per second.
