Your Tweets as a sidebar in a newspaper…

Would this be the complete opposite of traditional journalism…?

Your tweets on the sidebar of a story in a newspaper – unedited.

Personally I haven’t seen it happen yet, but it’s inevitably going to happen sooner then we think. There are already a ton of journalists tweeting and there are even stories about what people are tweeting about. Now the question becomes how soon until we see our tweets as a sidebar to stories?

When tweets are featured as reactions or day two stories, look for the twitter world to become more conservative.

What are your thoughts? How soon until we see tweets in a newspaper? What kind of effect will it have on the users on this social networking and micro-blogging service?
