Can you cover the new using only Twitter and Facebook?

Asking that question in one of our newsrooms will get you burned at the stake. The five journalists who will attempt to answer that question will be safely tucked away in a French farmhouse. With access only to Facebook and Twitter, they’ll try to verify the validity of stories (by cross-checking multiple feeds?) over a five day period. No smartphones, TV, radio or newspapers. They’ll be blogging their experiences but I couldn’t find a link. Will add it if I do.
