Twitter Reactions To News Of The World's Closing

Rupert Murdoch's News Of The World closed its doors Thursday in the wake of a massive phone hacking scandal. The British paper was driven to death when advertisers started fleeing from the paper en masse, following an outcry of negative publicity from Prime Minister David Cameron and critics alike.

Media people in the know seem to think that the paper got what they deserved, but many agree that the significance of the 168-year-old daily, and its subsequent closing, should be noted. Some used to snark to express their feelings, others went a more genuine route. See what they had to say below and add your own reaction in the comments section.
