UPDATE 12/19/2009 – I have consolidated all of the Twittering Journalists wiki into Twitter lists.

Or consider reading my Media Outlets Twittering paper from paper.li.

  6. This is a great resources, and I commented on that at MyRagan. But, will you share how your getting these resources? Are you just doing a traditional key word search in Twitter? Are there other resources?

    Comment by Rodger D. Johnson — May 2, 2008 #

  7. Rodger, I did some web research, found several other bloggers with lists and compiled those. Then, I did a Twitter search for “reporter” and “journalist”. I’m still compiling that list because it is large and requires me to view each listing to ensure they are with a legitimate media outlet.
