The Winnipeg Free Press added a new feature to its website late Thursday, which they call a “Free For All.” Users can post and share videos, links and other content they feel is worthy of being viewed by the Freep nation. But don’t get carried away too quickly — as with the other areas of the site where users generate content, it’s subject to moderator approval.
The page also includes non-stop, real-time coverage of some of the best Twitter feeds around, including yours truly from @ChrisDca
“I was lamenting the fact that I don’t have time to do the Daily Dig blog anymore, but I still wanted to provide the service, said John White, Deputy Editor Online. “With Cover It Live, I can post a quick video or link in a few minutes. And, because we can embed Twitter feeds, people can see at a glance new updates without refreshing the page.”
The Free Press writers will also be invited to contribute videos and links, as well as the general public.
