Not breaking news

There is a Twitter account that describes itself as “Breaking news about New Zealand.”

New Zealand Daily

Breaking news about New Zealand.

I’ve noticed that their news is often not exactly “breaking”. Like this tweet at 7.56 am on Thursday 4 June.

Cricket-Rain holds up New Zealand victory bid

To anyone who follows cricket that’s obviously old news. Yesterday morning’s news was that New Zealand had won the test, so that is two days old.

Their other recent links are also linking to old news, two day old news generally.

Not a good look for something promoting “breaking news”

    Perhaps this is a variant on those freeview channels. You’ve obviously gone to the wrong Twitter Account and got @NewZealandDaily+2days accidentally.
