Journalists and online etiquette

I always feel a bit foolish blogging about a blog about a blog, but I recommend Andy Dickinson's post about some peeved Guardian journalists whose community interaction received a robust reaction. You can just imagine them crying "but I'm a journalist!" when they were encouraged to participate in social media and then again when they were disagreed with.

It's tough: journalists didn't become journalists to do this kind of thing because journalism has moved on and (many) journalists haven't. You can understand their horror.
