Study: More Journalists Use Twitter

According to the Oriella Digital Journalism Study, more journalists are tweeting. The survey asked 553 journalists from 15 different countries about their digital habits. The results showed that about 60 percent of journalists are tweeting away in 2013, up from 47 percent last year.

The report found that Twitter was also the most popular social media platform, and it’s not even close. While 60 percent of the journalists said they use Twitter, the next most often used tool was a personal blog, at 34 percent. The blog was followed by Google+ (28 percent) but some of them must have been lying, right? Google+ is awful.

The journalists who were surveyed were from America, Brazil, France, Germany, Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Australia, Canada, China, India, New Zealand, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
