Hi Bruno

We recently launched several websites based on the twitter model. These are sites dedicated to issues we all face. It's early days yet, but we hope they will be used by activists and volunteers to cover important events.

Hate to do self-promotion - but I'm gonna do it anyway :-) : Over at the Online Journalism Blog, I wrote about the different uses of Twitter for journalists - news coverage, connecting with readers, and aggregating data.

Twitter, I believe, is one of those applications where experimentation is key to approach. In simple English try it and see if it works for you and your newspaper (more http://tinyurl.com/2bsmz2). One possibility is to use it to cover municipal meetings (more http://tinyurl.com/2h3brn). I think the targeted audience and limited character capacity can play to a reporters skills and weaknesses.
