Hopefully I'm in the right place. I'm currently trying to write a scene that shows a mass of social media posts and newspaper pages splashing around the screen if this makes any sense? I'm struggling with how to format this to make it tangible. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hard to respond without context of the scene. Maybe something like
MONTAGE: MEDIA FRENZY - NY POST HEADLINE: "Dave wins 4th Oscar." - DAVE'S FACEBOOK PAGE - "Congrats on the Oscar Dave." - WASHINGTON POST HEADLINE: "Dave best writer of all time." - Dave typing a twitter post on his smartphone: "Thank you all - so humbled."

You mean like this? ...
This is a picture from Non-Stop (2014)
Maybe just simply say that the text message bubbles pop up on screen?

I assume that you mean something similar to the intro that Man At Arms uses in their videos?
Since the audience cannot pause the movie at the theater and only a bunch of anal retentive nerds in the world will actually pause their DVD or streaming to read the messages, you can say simply say that more and more social media posts pop-up covering the hole screen/everything, etc.
Maybe focus on the message that pop-up last, if it is important, and describe what it says.
What the other messages say is up to the editors and graphic designers. Why not give your work to others when you can?
If you are going to do this work yourself however, it would be a great idea to put references, jokes and Easter Eggs in them, so that the nerds will be happy to find out that they found something unique.
