How Many Press Releases Mention Twitter?

twitter1.jpg

Stumbling on a new blog named NewsReleasesMentioningTwitter run by one Jonathan Evans at PRNewswire piqued my curiosity: how many press releases mention Twitter on a given day?

In my search of PRNewswire and three other services, I found items ranging from new Twitter-related products, to the company’s contact info, to supportive feeds for ongoing things. Surprisingly, the lifestyley PRWeb had none for today, while BusinessWire lead the pack.

Here’s what I found for June 8th, as of the time of this post:

30 on BusinessWire, including one about TweetGrade, the tool to measure a user’s reach and influence

20 on PRNewswire including one announcing MLB.com’s plan to Tweet the Draft tomorrow.

14 on Marketwire including one mentioning the talking Quizno’s toaster

0 on PRWeb, though they had one on Friday announcing an affiliation between BrokerHunter.com and TwitterJobSearch.com
