Two Newspapers Drop Print, Go All Twitter!

From E&P:

April Fool's madness reigned this morning, and it wasn't just because of the fears over the latest computer worm. Both the venerable Guardian in London and the alt-weekly Mountain Express in Asheville, N.C. announced they were dropping print and going all Twitter.

The Guardian said it had finally listened to experts who claimed every story today can be told "in 140 characters."

The Asheville paper even produced a video, calling itself "the nation's first Twaper."

Meanwhile, the stodgy Economist announced it was opening a scary financial theme park, Econoland.

For reports, links and the video, to the E&P Pub.
