The Twitterverse was today privy to a debate that, in pre micro-blogging days, might well have taken place behind closed doors.
The Guardian’s editor Alan Rusbridger and outspoken Labour MP (and blogger/Twitterer) Tom Watson engaged in a bit of tweeting on the subject of the Guardian’s treatment of Gordon Brown and Rusbridger’s own anti-Labour editorial last week:
Oh to be a fly on the wall at that morning conference (the daily meeting where the paper’s editors gather to discuss and plan the day’s coverage).
Later, Rusbridger also confirmed that Watson would be writing for the paper tomorrow as well:
Great to watch the media v politics drama unfolding and kudos to the two protagonists both for the offer and the acceptance!
