Occupy Minnesota stories progressed throughout day

| No Comments

MinnPost's coverage of the Occupy Minnesota protests progressed throughout the day.

The day began with a small paragraph, where MinnPost asked protestors to send in pictures and information.

As multimedia and Tweets came in, MinnPost curated them and turned them into a story that lengthened with the hour.

The day-after story, by the Star Tribune, took a different tone. It was less about crowdsourcing and more about reporting. This is likely because they had time to get people to the scene.

MinnPost turned its story into a social media trail of tweets, a much different take than the Star Tribune.
