Did the Arizona Daily Star Ask for Their Staff's Twitter Passwords?

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 12:00 PM

There are certainly a number of actions that occur over at the Arizona Daily Star that befuddle us here at the Weekly, but yesterday we heard through the grapevine something that was even beyond our general confusion. Apparently, an email went out to about two dozen employees requesting that those reporters turn over their Twitter passwords over to management. Now, unless the Star is getting super vigilant about social media grammatical errors among their staff, it would seem Tucson's daily wants to keep an extra bit of control over their writers, perhaps to keep Josh Brodesky from emotionally hashtagging again. Still...for a paper that collects staff tweets online and has active tweeters like Tim Steller, Becky Pallack and the Finleys on the sports side, it's a weird move and one the staff can't be thrilled about.
