BreakingNewsOn wins a Shorty award

February 12th, 2009Posted by in Events, Online Journalism

BreakingNewsOn (BNO) – the Twitter-based news alert service – has triumphed at the Shorty awards by winning the best news category.

The awards – held in New York yesterday – celebrated the best producers of short content on the microblogging site.

There were 25 other categories up for grabs, including best weird, best social media and best personal content.

In true Twitter style, the winners’ acceptance speeches were limited to 140 characters.

BNO has been providing news coverage since May 2007 and at time of writing has more than 24,000 followers.

In January, BNO founder Michael van Poppel announced the news service would be launching as a website later in the year.
