I’ve been using Twitter more lately to source media opportunities for myself and my clients. Perhaps these handles will help you to get more media coverage, too.
You may have heard of and even use the free service called www.HelpAReporter.com. Why not also follow them on Twitter? This service is used by Wall Street Journal, New York Times and 45,000 other journalists who need experts (that’s YOU!) for their stories.
Ok, so this is a hashtag, not a twitter handle. (A hashtag simply means that you use the pound sign (#) and not the at sign (@).) When you follow this hashtag, you’ll see urgent requests from reporters who use Help A Reporter (see #1 above) and are extremely tight deadlines. Be among the first to help them out and win more media coverage.
