Your call: Goldman eschews wire services - Boom or bust?

'The Wall Street Journal' reported this week that Goldman Sachs will release its next quarterly earnings report via Twitter and its own website. A smart investment or not?

Goldman Sachs won’t use a wire service to release its next quarterly earnings report. Instead, it will rely on Twitter to drive investors, journalists, and observers to its own digital properties, where it will lay out its quarterly performance.

Goldman cited recent hackings of wire services, as well as the company wanting to take more control over its potentially market-moving numbers. Critics have pointed out that anything can be hacked.

Is avoiding wire services a smart and savvy move by the Wall Street blue chip? Or is it shooting itself in the foot? Have your say below by tweeting at @prweekus or taking our poll.
