Plane Crash!!!! OH wait....Never Mind

Just because you can use social media to get the news out instantly to viewers, it doesn't mean to just throw shit out there. 

KWCH sent out this breaking news story on social media: 

Now, of course, if you have family that lives in that neighborhood, this tweet might have sent chills down your spine. 

But then the station followed up a bit later with this tweet:

So, yes, a plane landed on a runway and then took off. That was the breaking news. Imagine if the station reported every plane that landed at the airport and then took off again as breaking news. 

That would be a very busy Twitter feed.

Next time, maybe confirm that it was not a plane landing on an airstrip, before you send out breaking news of a crash.
