(November 06, 2007) Here's an example of a media snack. Essentially, the New York Times is using Twitter to make a river of news...headlines that are really useful on your cell phone. They look like appetizers on a tray. Hence the notion of a media snack.
The whole idea of Media Snacking is an oversimplification of the fact that there are platform specific characteristics of language. Many factors, besides some backwoods definition of the King's English, determine what is the most effective form of communication, given the platform.
