This Web Faceoff series is supported by Buick.

It’s time once again for a new edition of our Web Faceoff Series, wherein we pit two services, devices or trends against each other for a knock-down, drag-out fight for the affection of Mashable readers.

Last week we saw Google TV defeat Apple TV in the web television arena, and this week we turn our attention to a question whose answer appears to be shifting: Where do you get your news?

Considering the growing role of social networks in how we consume information, it’s a good time to pit the following two sources against each other: Where do you get more of your news from these days, Twitter or newspapers?

Cast your vote in the poll below until Sunday, June 6 at 3 p.m. PST to make your voice heard. And be sure leave a comment below about the reasoning behind your vote. Happy voting!
