PR Week Question: Are there any new tools out there that can help me connect with other PR pros?
Answer: ” Jeffrey Davis of Sawmill Marketing Public Relations in Baltimore, Maryland (aka @contactjeff) touts the Twitter micro-blogging service.
“Twitter can be used to monitor trends in social media by following and participating in exchanges with some of the leading thinkers in social media and PR,” he says.
“People share links to interesting blog posts and news stories, send live updates from conferences and comment on real-life experiences from a PR perspective.”
Many news organizations are distributing updates via Twitter, making the service a valuable source for breaking news. Some companies are using Twitter to communicate with their audiences.
