Radio Twitter directory launched
An online directory of radio professionals using Twitter has been launched by Media UK.
[link=http://www.mediauk.com/radio/people/twitter/]Top of the Twits[/link] was born Friday night and contains both presenters and station management. A version of the list is also available solely listing presenters.
James Cridland, Director and Founder of Media UK, said: "I was curious to see who was using Twitter simply to broadcast their thoughts, and who was using it in more of a two-way fashion. So, I thought I'd find out."
Of the top ten, all ten are from BBC stations, and eight are from BBC Radio 1. The top commercial radio 'twitterer's are currently Iain Lee from Absolute Radio, Kerrang!'s Kate Lawler, and another Absolute Radio presenter Geoff Lloyd.
The site promises that the figures are continuously updated; and, to ensure that only real IDs are listed, asks presenters or producers to add their details to firstname.lastname@example.org using a work email address.
