Twittering Journalist Wiki Compiled

Have you always thought that there has to be a lot of journalists on Twitter, but you just can’t find them? Rest assured, we now have the Media People Using Twitter Wiki, which lists, you guessed it, the Twitter account names of media people using Twitter. This list is nowhere near comprehensive – for example, we don’t see anyone at mediabistro on the list and many of us Twitter. (@laureltouby @mediabistro @fishbowlny, @fishbowlla, @fishbowldc @tvnewser @agencyspy, @unbeige, @galleycat) but hey, it’s not a bad start.

The journos are already on to the fact that this list is spreading fast, namely due to a mention today on the 30k strong HARO list. Writes BusinessWeek columnist and tech reporter Sarah Lacy, who is on the list: “i just got 20+ followers at the same time with seemingly no provocation. hopefully you’re not all looking for sarah palin,” followed by, “up to 40 now in 10 min. apparently there’s some list of reporters on twitter.”

This actually works out rather well for the journalists, who now that they’re increasingly being judged by pageviews and other web traffic metrics, won’t mind a nice growth in the list of followers they can push story links to.
