BBC Three isn't really aimed at me these days but I do see the links to their "stories" from the BBC News website. I couldn't help but notice over the last few days:
about silly bath photos went viral on Twitter, so Twitter made it a Twitter Moment
. Then BBC Three just basically copied that
about parents inadvertently shaming their offspring when viral on Twitter, so Twitter made it a Twitter moment
. Again, BBC Three just basically copied that
What's going on? They are blatantly (and needlessly) copying content from a third party here. Plus most people that want that sort of stuff will be on the original platform (Twitter) anyway.
As for the news website, I think it should focus on stories that would make it on to a network bulletin. If it wouldn't fit on TV, don't put it on the website. Leave the fluff, features and opinions to others. I think the BBC would also save themselves a lot of hassle, and accusations of bias etc. by following such an approach too.
