The evolution of gossip: Talk beats Twitter
According to a TNS survey, many people knew Ryan Giggs was party to an injunction before anyone Tweeted.
Reading the story in the FT ...
"Gossip, not Twitter, toppled gagging order"
As a headline this sounds punchy against the detail ...
"The researcher found that two in five surveyed claimed to know that it was Ryan Giggs who took out a super-injunction to prevent publication of an alleged affair, before it was revealed by John Hemming, a Liberal Democrat MP, in parliament last week."
