10 students that journalists should follow on Twitter

After sending her a topic idea for this week’s #collegejourn — an online discussion for college journalists — Suzanne Yada told me “the pros are certainly invited.” I laughed and replied that “the way I see it, college students are the experts.”

So here is a list of 10 experts that tweeting journalists should follow. I’m also including links to their blogs [b] and, since most of them are on other networks, links to their Delicious [d], Publish2 [p2], and Wired Journalists [wj] pages.

  1.  @alanataylor: Alana Taylor, journalism student at NYU [b – p2]
  2.  @BenLaMothe: Ben LaMothe, ePublishing graduate student at City University London [b]
  3.  @ckanal: Craig Kanalley, journalism graduate student at DePaul University [b – p2  – wj]
  4.  @danielbachhuber: Daniel Bachhuber, junior environmental sciences and journalism student at the University of Oregon [b – dwj]
  5.  @emilyingram: Emily Ingram, news-editorial and advertising student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln [b – dp2  – wj]
