Re "A glimpse at the future of journalism through the eyes of interns" (Joyce Terhaar, July 13) In the time of the colonies, it would take weeks if not months for news to become well-known. As technology became more advanced, so did the distribution of news. What used to take long periods of time only takes seconds to do now.

The Internet is the future of journalism. Social media sites like Twitter, which provide real-time news updates, and online newspapers are the quickest and most convenient way to convey the news.

Journalism is a master of adaptation. When there are opportunities for journalism to become improved, there is no doubt that journalists will act on those opportunities.
