Twitter for newsrooms: A "how to" guide

Twitter has released a guide to using its service to gather content and report news in the 21st Century, titled “Twitter For Newsrooms.” There are four parts to the process:
  • Report, which gives tips on how to use Twitter Search, Advanced Twitter Search, TweetDeck, and Archive Search;
  • Engage, which highlights methods on effectively tweeting for particular audiences;
  • Publish, which introduces the tools Web Intents, Follow and Tweet, and the Blackbird Pie plugin;
  • Extra, which leads to support areas, Twitter Blogs, and Twitter partners.
Says the site:
We know you come from different generations. Some are native to the pilcrow (¶), others native to the hashtag. You began your careers in different media: radio, print, broadcast, online and mobile. But you share a common bond: the desire to make a difference in the world, bringing reliable information to the communities you serve.
