List: News organizations using Twitter

twitter.pngTwitter, the microblogging application that’s taken the geek world by storm, seems to have grown quite popular with news organizations.

Check out this great list from Carlos Granier-Phelps of media outlets throughout the world that are now using Twitter. The list includes media organizations from South America, Europe, the U.S. and more. [Tip o’ the hat to Andy Dickinson]

[UPDATE: Bill Couch points out in the comments that there’s a great list here too.]

Take a few minutes to scope out what other news orgs are up to on Twitter. Some, like the New York Times, have set up feeds that instamatically post new news to Twitter. Some, like, post just the big breaking news. And others have been microblogging the election and branding Twitter feeds to particular reporters.

And if you haven’t already, make sure to grab your site’s name on Twitter before somebody else does!

  1. I wouldn’t say just make sure you grab your site’s name. Think of all the other names that could be useful. We’ve registered, or at least tried to register, all the top sports teams in our markets as well as relevant sections on our site. I have several twitter accounts. The domain wars may be over, but the social networking URL battles have yet to catch on.
