I’ve been using Twitter, the hottest tool on the interweb. How useful is it for journalists? I mean, can it help me to find good story leads? Well I haven’t been on Twitter long but I have a suspicion it can because it’s a really quick way to make connections, discover projects/initiatives/companies and watch what interesting people are up to. Plus it’s the first time online that the proletariat, politicians and celebrities have all hung out together in the same bit of the web. I’m going to spend a bit more time twittering to find out. . . Also there’s a poll on LinkedIn asking this very question – is Twitter good for journos? – go and vote! Go on!
