After taking MAJOR HEAT from bloggers and other news organizations, for twittering the funeral of a 3-year-old (myself included) the Rocky Mountain News has decided to cease and desist, at least for now. Editors had apparently planned to have a reporter twitter a second funeral, but a staffer spoke up and the decision was reversed, according to this article.

I firmly believe that there are innumerable ways to engage users and as a community manager, I am game for trying almost anything.

But as I said before, not everything is meant to be twittered.
