Editor’s note: As part of my master’s class, I have been asked to write about ten Twitter accounts I find helpful to my beat. My beat, in this case, is media.
In no particular order:
Brian Stelter @brianstelter – Brian Stelter is CNN’s senior media correspondent and hosts CNN’s show, “Reliabale Sources.” He used to work at The New York Times. Brian also wrote the book, “Top of the Morning.”
David Carr @carr2n – David Carr writes the Media Equation for The New York Times.
David Folkenflik @davidfolkenflik – David Folkenflik is the media correspondent for NPR. Until recently he was following me. I hope it wasn’t something I said.
David Cohn @Digidave – David Cohn is Chief Content Officer and Founding Editor at Circa, and is previously of Spot.Us.
Jay Rosen @jayrosen_nyu – Jay Rosen is a journalism professor at New York University. He is often critical of the media, both print and broadcast.
Jeff Jarvis @jeffjarvis – Jeff Jarvis is a professor at City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism, directing its new media program. He seems to always be on Twitter and is not one to hold his tongue.
(Jim) Romenesko @romenesko – Jim Romenesko has a media blog in which he provides both news and commentary.
Nieman Journalism Lab @niemanlab – The Nieman Lab evaluates media and where the industry and its culture are headed.
Poynter. @Poynter – In St. Petersburg, Florida, Poynter is a journalism school and clearing house for debates on journalistic ethics.
I have a Twitter list of these accounts plus some others. You can find that here.
