Press Pass - Journalists on Twitter, organized by beat, media outlet, & region
From The Next Web:
Press Pass, a ’live directory’ of journalists from major publications, is a brand new Dubai-based site that comes to us courtesy of co-founders David Haddad, a product manager and software engineer, and Valencio Cardoso, an interactive designer.
The site lists journalists by region, beat or by publication, making it incredibly easy to find the journalist who can cover your story. Not only can you find out which journalists work at major publications and sites, you can connect with them through Twitter. You can also find out what they’re personally interested in, as Press Pass highlights the stories that they’re sharing through their Twitter feed.
The site analyzes each journalist’s tweets, creating a profile based on that content – including what they’re reading, topics they’re interested in and who they’re talking to. Each journalist is ranked based on the number of followers they have and their number of tweets.
From the Press Pass Web site:
Press Pass is an open live directory of journalists and media professionals organized by the outlets they work for and the beats and regions they cover.
We track what journalists on Twitter are sharing, and show you what they’re reading, how they rank compared to others, the topics they care about, who gets their attention, and so on…
Every now and then ordinary people need to get the message out to the public. Be it an entrepreneur with a new product, a non-profit that wants to raise awareness for a cause, or a citizen with a great photo of a protest.
Press Pass lets you discover reporters interested in your message so they can help you get the word out.
Ahem Press Pass….I don’t see The Future Journalism Project on your list of news organizations.
