Peer review: Trial by Twitter : Nature News

Peer review: Trial by Twitter : Nature News:
"Papers are increasingly being taken apart in blogs, on Twitter and on other social media within hours rather than years, and in public, rather than at small conferences or in private conversation.....such rapid response is all to the good, because it weeds out sloppy work faster. 'When some of these things sit around in the scientific literature for a long time, they can do damage: they can influence what people work on, they can influence whole fields,'

Yes this is speaking more on science papers than finance papers, but the same thing is happening in finance (maybe to a lesser degree)..
