This paper seeks to analyze case studies, prior research and tweets to understand the impact Twitter has had on the field of sports journalism. I am looking at this impact through the lenses of breaking news, speed, content, expanded dissemination and gatekeeping. These five aspects are things that Twitter excels at providing, and I want to see what these provide to sports journalism, specifically as it has adapted to a new medium.
