This week’s Illustration Friday theme is, “Hatch.”  As an avid user of various social media Web sites it made me think about the prevalence of Twitter.  As 2009’s most used word, breaking news is hatched on the site by the minute as one little birdie tells another, then another and so on.

The microblogging Web site is accessible to all, and at NO cost.  By using it and a combination of all the other free social media resources our blogs are on-line, we’re better connected to distant friends and we’re able to share photos and video with the world.  As a freelance designer, I am able to forgo the costs of hiring an agency, promote my own work and benefit from the retweets of my supporters.  Many large companies are even moving away from formal media advisories and press releases, instead tweeting about their own breaking news and linking those interested back to their Web site for additional information.
