Paper Cuts is Finally on Twitter

St. Louis journalist, Erica Smith the Newsroom Angel of Death, has been compiling and constantly updating a nifty Google map of all the layoffs in the newspaper biz for the past three years. She calls it fittingly, Paper Cuts. And now she has a Twitter account so you can follow the slaughter with all your new found free time. Here’s the link.

And just in case you’re curious, the number for this year according to Ms. Smith: 14,777. We still have three weeks but last year’s number was 15,977.

Well, at least they don’t have to drink alone.
