Derek Barry's Twitter Media Breakdown

Derek Barry, a journalist from Brisbane has conducted an interesting experiment.

He took the list of journalists and media people on twitter in Australia from Dave Earley’s site and did some fancy maths.

Basically he’s trying to figure out how journalists use twitter, which ones are the most influential, which ones listen more than talk and so on. It’s an awesome project and one I probably should have thought of earlier.

But the reason I am excited is because I am on there. I am on the list. So a big thank you to Dave Earley for putting me on the list in the first place and to Derek Barry for including me in the project. It’s helpful to know what I am doing and how I can use twitter better.

Marisa is a globetrotting freelance writer, journalist and editor with cat for hire (her, not the cat). She is currently based in Melbourne.
