Social media director for the Wall Street Journal Liz Heron has Storified some of the responses she received after posting a tweet a few days ago asking for the “#1 tip for social media newsgathering”.
The resulting Storify highlights some of the key pointers shared, such as verification and building trust with sources, as well as some digital tools to add to a journalism toolkit (including Storify itself).
Journalism.co.uk also recently produced a how to guide on using social media to gather news.
