It may be hard to believe, but Twitter is nearly a decade old. The platform has seen its ups and downs over the years, but it seems to have found a successful niche among news junkies.

In many ways, the Twitter feed resembles a modern-day wire and it allows users to aggregate content from their favorite news sources.

On this special episode of Generation App, we’re bringing together GeekWire co-founders Todd Bishop and John Cook, John’s mother, Sallie Cook, a traditional newspaper reporter, and your host, a millennial reporter who’s never actually owned a newspaper. Tune in to hear three generations of journalists to chat about where Twitter fits into the news media ecosystem.

Subscribe to Generation App on iTunes or SoundCloud and tune in next week to hear about the hot navigation app, Waze.
