									CONSERVATIVE TWEETS FORCE MSM COVERAGE OF GOSNELL TRIAL                                                                                        NationalDialogueMonitor
      Last week, conservatives flooded Twitter to demand that the mainstream media cover the Dr. Kermit Gosnell infanticide trial. They saw
      rapid success, causing mainstream media coverage of the Gosnell trial to triple and non-Twitter social media and web/blog coverage
      to quadruple from Thursday to Friday. Additionally, Gosnell was tweeted about twice as much as President Obama on Friday, and
      sustained an advantage through Saturday.

      Discussion fell during the weekend, as is typical for any news story, but points to a need for conservatives to continue to ensure the                ON TWITTER
      issue remains in the public eye going forward.
