Time Magazine Twitter cover

To date Twitter has been featured in a wide range of print publications. However whilst it may be referenced on the front cover, it's rare for Twitter to be the front cover main subject - though this has happened from time to time:

Earlier this year we saw Twitter dominate the front cover of Shortlist:

Whilst in March the Chicago Tribune added the Twitter handles for editorial staff to the masthead:

This week Twitter has made it to the front cover of Time Magazine and I really like the execution - featuring both Twitter and an iPhone:

Twitter journalism is now moving from describing what Twitter is, into describing how Twitter is changing things and I think this week's Time Magazine front cover really captures the spirit of the Twitter age!
