Love it or hate it - Twitter is now a
core tool for journalists and PR people.
Hacktweets enables journalists to get more focused, high quality responses from informed
people when they are looking for facts and statistics, interviews, expert
comment on an issue, competition prizes, case studies, or products to
trial and review.
Journalists ask for information from
people working in particular industry sectors. Relevant questions
get answered by relevant
people via an @reply - which filters out a load of the junk.
Hacktweets delivers more high quality
sources to journalists and more high quality opportunites to PR people. It saves
both time and annoyance.
Journalists have more direct access to people that can help them on Twitter, get
snappier responses, and avoid receiving a mass of irrelevant
responses. Likewise, PR people don't have to trawl Twitter in the hope of
stumbling across a relevant journalist request.
The service also enables media
professionals to monitor specific
sectors of the media on Twitter, to see what journalists are
writing about and find interesting each day.
