Reporters and Twitter

Talk about breaking news..

It wasn't too long ago I thought I would receive "up to the minute" news by signing up on CNN, The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC and a few other sites for breaking news. The alerts would come into my emails. Bam. I would be getting news as it breaks.

But with Twitter, breaking news is traveling even faster - as the editor of LA reports.

And with Twitter, most reporters offer some interesting tidbits and observations that never make it to the final story.

So now the question becomes, how many reporters do you follow on Twitter?
