Mathew Ingram responds to the Pulitzer board's new emphasis on speed for the Breaking News award. "If reporting that occurs 'as quickly as possible' is the main criteria, then I think Twitter definitely fits the bill — or is at least a leading contender. Videos uploaded to YouTube or streamed from a news event like the “Occupy Wall Street” protests ... are also clearly real-time, but nothing matches the speed that is possible with 140-character text messages and links on Twitter, and videos and photos often spread this way as well." Related: Perhaps the change will increase entries in the breaking news category (Nieman Lab) | Missed opportunity: "Still no Pulitzer for innovation," Jay Rosen tweets. || Earlier: Pulitzer Prizes change breaking news category to emphasize ‘real-time’ reporting
