Apparently, due to budget limitations, the Rapid City Journal has laid off Twitter.


I’m sorry to announce that due to budget limitations it appears that the Rapid City Journal, the flagship newspaper of West River South Dakota, sadly had to let Twitter go as a result.

We have heard rumors that they may instead rent out part of their online presence to MySpace, much like the newspaper rented out part of their building to a hair salon.

Okay, all of that above is satire, but the Rapid City Journal has oddly let their Twitter presence go completely silent as of November 12th.

Kind of a sad situation for a newspaper who was once a pioneer in on-line news and discussion through Mt. Blogmore. Now they’re devolving into a parody.

    It is really too bad that the paper has gotten so far away from their readers. It just does not represent the views or the interests of the region they are marketing to.
