A List of News Organizations using Twitter

Several traditional media organizations are using Twitter to distribute breaking news and alerts in a timely manner. Many media employees are also using Twitter to inform their followers of news as they happen, before they get back to the newsroom.

I’ve tried to condense a list of traditional media organizations using Twitter, with links to their Twitter accounts and graphs of their Twitter usage. I’ve only included those that have recent activity.

If you know of a news organization using Twitter as a distribution outlet, drop me a message through the comments form below, indicating their name and Twitter account.

    Some have so many tweets that it becomes hard to keep up and rather annoying too. I think some (not all) media companies need to evaluate their use of Twitter so followers aren't bombarded with tweets.

    Those are really good points. Because of the importance of the Internet today, most business people take chances on considering SEO services. Houston-based small company that I own got help from link builders. It’s a coffee shop, by the way.
