#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – use Topsy to search the social web

February 9th, 2012Posted by in Search, Top tips for journalists

Topsy is a is search option recommended by Nicola Hughes, Knight-Mozilla Fellow at the Guardian during a workshop on searching social media at last week’s news:rewired conference.

It is also a previous Journalism.co.uk tool of the week.

Topsy is “one of the only Twitter search tools that has Tweets older than two weeks”, Hughes explained.

In order to research and verify images, Hughes advised putting images in to Topsy to see if they have been previously shared.

The full list of mentions of “Topsy” and #newsrw (the conference hashtag) are at this Topsy link.
