Every morning starts the same way for me, I roll over and check Twitter on my iPhone.
I check Twitter before I check my email, my text messages, or even get out of bed. My wife has even threatened to start her own Twitter account to remind me to take out the trash. I read all the news from the 170 or so people I follow and then I read every single thing y'all send my way. (Every morning for 786 consecutive days an Alabama fan has accused me of being gay).
Everyone in public relations or journalism knows it. It’s a love/hate relationship. In many cases, we make friends and contacts that mutually benefit each other’s careers. In other cases, we do what we gotta do to make our client or managing editor happy. Some PR pros are better than others, while some journalists are easier to work with than others – it’s just the name of the game.
I’ve split my career on both sides of the media relations aisle. First as a journalist, and later a PR pro. I’ve always thought that both disciplines were very similar, but not exactly synonymous. In the past, there has been a very distinct line between the two, but that is all about to change. Welcome to 2012 – the year it all turns upside-down.
A vast amount of information appears on the Internet each day.
As a consequence, online news consumers suffer from “infobesity,” defined as the tendency for people to forget what they’ve seen or read online. For this reason, David McCandless invented a new “visual science of information,” as described in an article published on the website of the French magazine Les Inrocks. McCandless, who summed up his work in the book Datavision, created a graphic system which enables news consumers to memorize information using a compilation of forms and colors, eliminating the “erasing effect” of info overload.
A spokesman for the board that oversees the Pulitzer Prize awards for journalism says live reporting of a news event using Twitter would not qualify for a Pulitzer unless it also appeared on a traditional news website.
