The Independenthas a column on page 2 today - "The news in 140 characters" - which is made up of tweets from the twitterarti. Among those whose tweets are featured are Al Gore, Armando Iannucci, Ryan Adams, SarahPalin, and Alastair Campbell. The Indy likes Alastair Campbell's tweet so much they've used it on the front page. "Low point today - son of a neighbour asking if I could get him Piers Morgan's autograph."
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
