I know because I read it on Twitter. And -here'd the important bit - that headline is all I had to read.
In most media, interest rate announcements make for an article or a news story. They spin it out, because the format they have available, indeed all they know how to do, requires each story to be just that. A story, with a bit of context and analysis and speculation for what it will mean in the future. So the newspaper journalist will tell us a bit about how Gordon made the MPC politically independent and the TV newsreader will point out what it means for mortgage rates, probably with a talking head (or two, for "balance") discussing whether it's good or bad.
But interest rate announcements are precisely the sort of news where absolutely everything relevant can be conveyed in a sentence.
Of course, stockbrokers and football fans have always known that this is the right approach. Stock tickers just tell you prices: up, down, by how much. Final score reports tell you who won, who lost, by how much. And now, on Twitter, we get all the news that's useful to print - all 140 characters of it, telling us what has happened with links if we care to know more.
