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.


@10000words Mark S. Luckie has a multimedia journalism blog with the same name as his twitter.
@digitaljournal Digitaljournal reports from over 140 countries, it is a media news network.

@MsBeat Ms. Beat runs the blog  Beatblogging.org on is on top the multimedia beat reporting scene.
@pgillin Paul Gillin is a speaker, writer and social media marketing consultant he also has his own blog.
@lavrusik Vadim Lavrusik is a Columbia Journalism New Media grad student and has a blog named after himself. 


@CIRChrista Christa Scharfenberg has many hats but what sticks out to me is her interest in nonprofit journalism and investigative reporting.
@mediatwit Mark Glaser is the executive editor of PBS MediaShift and is a writer.
@MartinLangeveld MartinLangeveld is a new media blogger for NiemanLab.org.
@nickdimarco Nick DiMarco is a Towson University Mass Comm. major that will be graduating this winter. He is also my fellow class mate who has a similar blog topic.
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?
