This is a free BETA service – an experiment
that tries to help journalists get the answers they want from their media colleagues and PR
people via Twitter. You can also use the service to monitor
specific sectors of the media on Twitter, to see what journalists are
writing about and find interesting that day.
Increasing numbers of journalists and PR professionals are beginning to sign up to Twitter. A 2009 PRWeek/PR Newswire
media survey found that twenty-two percent of journalists were registered with Twitter.
The general concept of this service is that journalists ask
questions and PR people answer them. If other journalists have answers or sources, then it is just as much a forum for them to @reply or Direct Message the querying journalist. However, if journalists prefer to keep details of stories or
questions under wraps, then it's their choice how much information to reveal.
We’re just trying to provide a way to structure communication between journalists and PR people via Twitter. Relevant questions answered by relevant
people - which ideally filters out a lot of the junk.
Please be aware. This is not a commercial service. We have day jobs – so please be chilled out about it. We know it’s not perfect, but we’re
giving it a punt and would like to hear how you think it could be improved.
