Sky News Australia CEO Paul Whittaker says it will continue to use Twitter to post breaking news stories and links to content on its website. However, Sky News will cease distributing its video content via the social media platform, after online activists edited its videos to create fake news stories. Meanwhile, its free-to-air rivals will launch exclusive news bulletins on Facebook Watch, while Sky News will produce a daily show called ‘Unpacked’, which will focus on a major news story each day.
