Twitter, Microjournalism & MicroBlogging Hits The NY Times

I love it when I have some “good ol’ substance and fodder” for my pitches. Sitting here in South Beach Miami preparing for a big presentation today and stumbled across this piece in the New York Times that discusses Twitter and “Micro-blogging” and its effect on the election coverage and journalism. This is very timely as I’m about to transform a slightly disengaged client this afternoon into a converted soul who will begin to look at interactive media and pr in an entirely new light. I have been a champion (and user) of Twitter for some time now and like my Fast Company colleague and fellow “micro-journalist” Peter Fasano says, “20 posts in Twitter in a day translates into a typical blog posting.” Fasano, like all my other “Twit-izen” Friends have made me feel like my contributions to Twitter count in the eyes of the “social media gods” who tally up whether or not I’m contributing. What is true is that the rules are changing and are your clients up to speed or are they waiting on you to catch up?
