Journalism 101, How TMZ Got The Exclusive on Snooki's Arrest: via Twitter
Watch carefully, Journalism majors. This is how you do it.
Step 1: Set up a column on Tweetdeck for news on Snooki.
Step 3: Catch breaking news report that Snooki was arrested via nearby regional news affiliate.
Step 4: Pay careful attention to Twitter. Sure you didn't see anything good pop up before?
and Step 5: Start Tweeting at people like your life depends on it. Because now, it does.
TMZ has obtained footage -- pretty painful footage -- showing a wobbly Snooki trying to get on a bicycle right before she was arrested earlier today ... and as you can imagine ... gravity wins.
Oh, and don't forget to come with a full wallet.
Jay Rosen, eat your heart out. Class dismissed.
