BBC's World Have Your Say tweet editorial meeting

The World Have Your Say team at the BBC provided twitter updates from their daily editorial meeting earlier today.

Audience input is already entirely central to what WHYS do, but this idea has the potential to further erode the gatekeeping model. (Even if editor, Mark Sandell, still retains control evident in a nice touch at number 8.)

These tweets are in reverse order (obviously). So you need to start at the bottom. (Blogger has not unhelpfully insisted on numbering them for some unknown reason).
  1. Ok Shaimaa's delegating. the meetings wrapping up but we'll meet again at 1500 for a catch up. get in touch if you want to share your views
  2. do we need our BBC religious correspondent to guide the conversation? we think we need an independent voice
  3. Tom cruise would be a good get.! he's post on the you tube. How do you find scientologists?
