Beat twitters I follow

There are some really great people I have found over the last couple of days on Twitter, to follow for my beat. Their blogs and tweets have helped keep me intune and up to date with what is going on in the world.

Over the last couple of days I have really felt connected to the new media world through twitter, blogs, Google Reader and websites. I have been able to connect with some organizations and people all over the country who are interested in the same thing as me, the news.

Sometimes I feel I am in information overload.

As I have said before, just when I think the world cannot get any faster it does. It feel I have to have my hands in a little bit of everything to be able to keep up. And sometimes that is overwhelming. But it is the world we live in.

What do you think about all the media outlets we have today? Is it good or is it a burden?

  1. A year or two ago, I would have agreed with you. Twitter and Facebook and my blog and my website were all information overload! Now I’m realizing that there are different audiences on each one, and each one feeds me different types of information. Also, I’m much better at just scooping out what I can while I’m logged in and letting the rest go. You can’t keep up with it all. If it’s really important, it’ll find its way to you.

    I am not so much for all of the in your face news on demand. Where do peoples right to privacy fit in? Could you imagine if you were the “subject” of the latest youtube video gone virul? The local news picks it up and the next thing you know your the talk of the town. A lot of the different “media outlets” are garbage anyway. I would be good with less up to the minute stuff!
