Good Preeple or Bad Preeple?
12/11/2008 There's been a lot of online chatter about PR people using Twitter over the last two or three days, kicked off by this post by Stephen Davies.
Subsequently a wiki has been set up showing which PR people are using Twitter - which includes the Punch team.
I've been playing with Twitter for a little while and love it. I can't pretend that I'm as immersed as some but certainly it has it's uses in terms of receiving and, moreover, distributing information in a way that people are happy to receive it.
Aside from the current hype, my personal interest started when the BBC ran a feed of two journalists' exploits whilst driving to and gadding around the rugby world cup in 2007, which struck me as both a shamelessly cheap yet completely engaging means of telling ther tale in a format that I could genuinely devote the time to reading.
So, for the record, the Punch team's respective Twitter feeds are as follows:
