I had been writing very short summaries (usually 3 or 4 sentences) and then tweeting the links to the sources of the stories (New York Times, AdAge.com, etc.) rather than back to Poynter. Julie wanted our thousands of Twitter followers to stop by Poynter’s site, then decide whether to check out the original story.

I nearly missed this whole thing, but: how utterly inane! Is this what Poynter stands for? Manipulating people for pageviews has nothing to do with excellent journalism, ethics, or new media skills.
