Really interesting post from DERT’s man in PA, Luke Pollard, on the rise of Twitter amongst the PR community:
North East web guru and ex-Edelman employee, Stephen Davies, or PRblogger.com fame is a regular poster on his Twitter feed and it has attracted a sizeable and influential following. He posted a few days ago on his blog a list of UK PR people on Twitter and in only a few days it has grown from a small number of PR pioneers to an increasingly comprehensive list of Twitter-ers from agencies across the land. If you’re just starting out on Twitter and want a step up you could do a lot worse than pressing follow on everyone on this list. Effectively you are downloading a ready made network of the best and the brightest in our industry.
I only started using Twittter a few days ago (like many, I took a while to really understand the benefits). Already its proving to be invaluable in keeping up-to-date with the thinking and observations of clever people/ colleagues/ journalists and friends (this list is not mutually exclusive…).
