Reporting gruesome details on social media: Necessary or TMI?

Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.

Today we're talking about what to do when journalists have gruesome details during live coverage? Do you report them? If so, how? What, at least, should journalist consider and balance when reporting such events? Are we even doing that? Bring your ideas, links and #realtalk.

The feed is posted below. You can also check out past chats over here.

If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
