Their headline reads “Twitter switch for Guardian, after 188 years of ink“
I was very surprised to find out that The Guardian newspaper is switching to Twitter.
As an SEO consultant and a professional Internet user, we suggest to our clients to use Twitter to complement their marketing activities. But to switch from an online newspaper to Twitter is preposterous.
Well, judge for yourself. The following is from their website in their own words:

Only time will tell, but I think this will be a monumental mistake that we will all be talking about for years to come.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
