  • zahra_sadiq@bbcnews the amount of text is perfect , it's short yet very informative
  • bnjmn_pHey I am really digging this news format, I've been showing it around a lot. I would maybe kill the full page logo and just have a permanent bug like in this video. Have you experimented with closed captions in addition to your headlines? One of the appealing things about this format is that sound is optional (especially as many users have it off by default). good job !
  • bbcnews@zahra_sadiq: Thanks for the info. Good to know. @bnjmn_p: We might give this a try. Not a bad idea. Thanks!
