In April 2011 the editor in chief of El Mundo decided to withdraw from the online edition an article by Salvador Sostres about the murder of a woman committed by her boyfriend. The reaction and criticism about the article on Twitter led to the result. This is the first time that an opinion piece is removed from a Spanish newspaper after protests from the audience in the microblogging network. An audience with new communication tools amplifies its voice and forces the media to react to its demands in a new context in which the lines between interpersonal and mass communication are becoming more permeable.
