For those of you living under a Web 2.0-less rock, Twitter is the latest application to take the Internet by storm. Twitter allows users to send microupdates of 140 text characters or less to friends via instant message, RSS, mobile text alerts and more.
Doesn’t this sound like an ideal way to deliver news to Web savvy folks? Of course it does. Poynter has a great column about it here.
But you’re going to hit a road bump if some well-meaning denizen of the Internet has already claimed your news site’s name at twitter.com/yournewssite.
So mosey on over to Twitter (and Pownce if you have an invite), register for an account, and claim your name before it’s too late!
