Twitter at five: who has made the most of it in journalism?

As you may have heard, today is Twitter’s 5th birthday (and my 25th, though slightly fewer people seem bothered about that one).

To celebrate, we’re looking for stand-out examples of journalists using Twitter in the course of their work. What stories has Twitter helped to break? Have you found a great story or vital source there? Can you think of a journalist who has?

We’ll also be taking recommendations for the journalists that make the best of Twitter day to day, from those who are innovative to those who are simply effective. Let us know your thoughts.

You can comment below, tweet us at @journalismnews, or email joel [at]
