Live microblogging from the News 24 gallery

Following rapidly from my musings about a ‘breaking news’ blog, BBC News 24 morning editor Simon Waldman (no, not that one) spent the morning posting one or two line updates through the 10am to 1pm shift. Always good to see experiments, but this was too much:

11:41 – Just slipping out of the gallery for a moment, back soon,.
11:46 – I’m back…

It also seemed to be written, assuming people were watching and reading the blog live. Hardly likely, given the time of day. All in all, an interesting one-off, giving an insight into the life of a producer – but not the ‘breaking news blog’ it might have been.
