Is everyone a citizen journalist?

Is the public considered a journalist if they record a situation and upload it online? I think citizen journalism has the potential to be quite powerful and useful towards the wider public and aiding news reporters themselves. It can help spread information quickly on platforms such as twitter, facebook and youtube!
Here’s a little youtube video I created with some of my opinions on citizen journalism and some interesting pieces of information,
enjoy!
