3 things for Tuesday:
TWITTER DEBATED. Is Tweeting good or bad for political journalism? Mathew Ingram says that, while political brush fires can erupt within minutes, irrelevant stories also burn out faster.
* Obama assassination plot leader apparently attended 2008 Republican convention as a page
VIDEO WORLD. Wall Street Journal reporters are filing "microvideo" updates to a news stream.
* Washington Post using Google Hangouts to cover convention
'BECAUSE APPLYING TO YOUR LEGISLATOR NO LONGER WORKS.' Great punchline from Steve Rhodes for the report of record application rates to the University of Illinois.
