OKLAHOMA CITY -- The world of news is changing rapidly and it is never more evident than in the case of breaking news. The advent of social media has given everyone a voice and allows not only the immediate release of information, but instantaneous feedback.

As was the case at the trade deadline and the reaction to Oklahoma City’s blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics.

Players and members of the media are allowed to react as soon as news drops and allows unfiltered access to their true thoughts and feelings on any major news. The impact is evident, especially in the case of a team as young and plugged in as the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Stars Kevin Durant, James Harden and Serge Ibaka all took to the social network Twitter to react, or in some cases express their confusion, to the news.
