For a story that started and spread on Twitter, some journalists chose to be quiet, or quieter, on Monday for the funeral of Ferguson, Missouri, teenager Michael Brown.

I have a fluctuating list of journalists who are in St. Louis and Ferguson now covering the continuing story, and many are live-tweeting the funeral.

You can find livestreaming of the funeral, which has begun, in several places, including from BET and Mashable.
