Twitter has launched a new account that is dedicated to spotlighting some of the best practices and innovative uses of Twitter by journalists and newsrooms. Twitter says the account will focus on “innovative Twitter use across all types of news & journalism – not just breaking”.
One of the first things @TwitterForNews has highlighted is the new Reuters ‘Social Pulse’ section. There are so many innovative users of Twitter out there. Last year’s effort by the Boston Globe to create a Twitter “information radiator” springs to mind as does the Guardian’s Twitter-based search assistant.
Twitter for News also highlights some of the resources that it offers for journalists.
