Poor Print

News this week that print publication circulation has dropped more 7 percent from last year and Condé Nast is shutting down Portfolio magazine after only 21 issues are more causes for concern for tangible news mediums.

All of this while, on a smaller scale, newspaper Web site audiences have increased 10.5 percent in the first quarter of 2009, and on a larger scale, Twitter saw a 95 percent increase in its number of worldwide visitors in March alone, eclipsing the 19 million mark (see graph below). Analysts estimate that if Twitter maintains its growth pattern, it will cross 50 million by summer. It’s also reported that by registering with the site, Oprah increasead Twitter traffic by 43 percent alone.
