I sent the tweet above out after targeting specific journalists for their response.
The question went to Alison Gow, Claire French, Sarah Marshall, Adam Tinworth, Paul Bradshaw, Al Horner, Becky Barnes, Jo Wadsworth, Hannah Waldrum, Josh Halliday, Joseph Stashko, Glyn Mottershead, Andy Halls and Joanna Geary.
Between them these journalists cover a wide spectrum of publications and platforms from the NME to The Sun's Bizarre column, regional press, The Times, Guardian and Wall Street Journal, to Twitter, Instagram and journalism degree courses.
The nature of Twitter means responses came from a much wider base because the nature of social media means writers reach a wider audience.
My first responses came from Brighton and Hove city councillor Emma Huxley.
Emma's point about communication was echoed by others.
Of course James didn't mean I was a "tool".
Against communication in general?
Networking and publishing via social media platforms helps people raise their profile as journalists
