Does Twitter cause media/news bias?

Northeastern University in Boston completed an initial study of the correlation between who a journalist follows on Twitter and the content that journalist produces (reported by Columbia Journalism Review: https://www.cjr.org/analysis/journalist-twitter-study.php). The small study of 1,000 journalists from 25 outlets found a "modest correlation," but asst. professor John Wihbey, one of the authors of the study, says a larger study is necessary.

How much do you think a journalist's social media contacts or personal contacts, for that matter, influence his or her work? What are some strategies you use to quash media bias?
