Twitter has launched a guide, titled “Twitter for Newsrooms,”. The guide shares tips on how to report, engage with other users and followers and how to use tweets in the process of reporting. But the fact that Twitter has launched an official guide for journalists is indicative of the impact of social media on the news.
Twitter wants to make its tools easier to use so you can focus on your job: finding sources, verifying facts, publishing stories, promoting your work and yourself—and doing all of it faster and faster all the time.
The goal is to help creative professionals in news, TV, sports and entertainment use Twitter effectively.
