When It Happens
News reporting has been taken to another level thanks to the internet.
Just a few years ago, people had to wait until TV or radio news
segments at specific times, or wait for the newspapers every morning.
Today, we can receive news alerts to our phones and update ourselves
about the latest happenings by visiting our favorite news sites.
However, as convenient and simple as things have become, we are
still looking for faster access, especially if the content we look for isn’t in English. If you are looking for the
fastest way to get Tamil news online, these tips and tricks may come in handy.
For Sri Lankan Tamil News
If you are looking for Sri Lankan Tamil news, you have two ways to go; mainstream media or citizen
journalism/social media. If you prefer mainstream media, you need to see which Sri Lankan newspapers or
TV channels have updated and user-friendly websites. Most sites tend to be full of advertisements or are
rarely updated. Checking how often the ‘breaking news’ segment is updated will give you an idea about
how active the site is.
If you want to steer away from mainstream media, social media does offer reliable and accurate news
outlets. Of course, you need to be careful about whom you follow or subscribe to because there is a lot of
incorrect information or ‘fake news’ online.This doesn’t mean that you can’t find reliable sources and
constant updates in sites or blogs run by citizen or freelance journalists, and even social media users. For
instance, by searching for tags like ‘Sri Lanka’ and ‘Tamil news’ you can find your way to Twitter users who
will keep you updated.
For World Tamil News
While every newspaper has a section for foreign news, the news is often summarized and the coverage is
limited. This is mostly because newspapers have to prioritize and give space for the most important news.
Websites don’t face such problems, and so a wider range of world Tamil news can often be found online.
Like with Sri Lankan Tamil news, you can subscribe to newsletters or news alerts from local sites that have
strong foreign news sections. However, you can also move beyond local media and subscribe to foreign
Tamil news websites. Here too, it’s important to not only decide which your favorite sites are but to also
subscribe to them. This way, you will receive instant updates as opposed to be updated only when you
remember to visit those sites.
As for world Tamil news, you can also rely on social media like Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and
YouTube channels for the latest information. Turn on notifications or alerts from the accounts so that you
don’t miss a thing.
If You Are Looking for Breaking News
With every passing minute, there’s something important taking place in the country and even the world.
The most significant of these qualify as breaking news and it’s important that we have fast access to
