College Media on Twitter

Ah, the power of social media. ‘Tis mahvelous.

I asked a question about college newspapers and twitter today on the College Media Advisers list serv. A short time later, Innovation in College Media pulled together a list of college media on Twitter. How fabulous! If you know of any, please visit the site and enter the info. It would be great to have one-stop repository for this information.

FYI, I also found a list of college newspapers that Twitter on college rag.

WNY and CNY media on Twitter

Carlos Granier-Phelps at NewMedia Strategy has a great list of news organizations on Twitter. The list is updated with comments by posters aware of other media on Twitter. (Erica Smith has a similar fabulous list with many newspapers on twitter here.)

This got me thinking:  What Western New York and Central New York news media are on Twitter? I know the Buffalo News is not, or at least not that I can find. (Come on, Buffalo News, Syracuse University’s Daily Orange is on twitter but you are not?!).

Here’s my list. If you know of any that I left out, please let me know.

NYT columnist just NOW starts Twittering?!

I got tweet from Romensko today about the fact that Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is now on Twitter. Romensko wonders if other Times columnists will follow.

You are kidding me, right? Just NOW getting on Twitter? I don’t blame Kristof. He’s actually doing it. I do blame the New York Times. Writers at local papers are on Twitter. Reporters at TV stations are on Twitter. Thanks for joining the crowd, NYT. I can’t imagine why newspapers are in trouble. (And believe me, I love newspapers and want them to survive!)

Let’s hope this is a case of it’s better late than never.
