Best. April. Fools. story. ever.

The Guardian newspaper of Great Britain published one of the best April Fool’s stories I’ve ever read. The paper “announced” that it would cease publication of the 188-year-old paper, and instead provide news entirely on Twitter.

In addition, it would also Twitterize it’s entire news archives.

Too funny, yet in a way a bit frightening to those of us too close to the issues facing newspapers today.

Here’s the link. It’s a great laugh.
