A Radio Canada journalist is among five French-speaking broadcast journalists who will will be holed-up in a farmhouse for a project called "Behind closed doors on the Net" to test the limits of reporting solely with Facebook and Twitter.They will be cut off from television, radio, smartphones and print media, and be given cellphones with no Internet capability. Each will have a computer with a blank hard drive. Tremblay told the Star he's hoping to take the experiment one step further and confine his sources entirely to Facebook and Twitter.
