Pitching Via Twitter: WCCO Meet the Journalist Part 3Posted by on October 13, 2009 at October 13, 2009 5:22 PM
According to what seems to be every self-proclaimed social media guru in the world, Twitter is the most momentous development since explorer Sir Francis Drake returned from his circumnavigation of the globe and discovered happy hour. Whatever its long-term impact is, Twitter certainly has made a huge difference in the way PR professionals and journalists interact. We asked WCCO reporter Jason DeRusha and WCCO news director Mike Caputa what they think of being pitched stories on Twitter and you can watch part 3 of our WCCO Meet the Journalist series to find out what they said.
And just in case you're in too big a hurry to watch a video that clocks in under three minutes, I'll sum it up -- they're big fans.
