15 tips for newsgathering on Twitter

Wall Street Journal social media editor Sarah Marshall offers her advice for reporting via Twitter. Take advantage of lists, including creating your own, following other people’s and examining what lists a person belongs to. Be familiar with Twitter’s Advanced Search feature, as well as how to search by location on Twitter. Use Tweetdeck’s engagement filter to find memes, which Marshall used for a roundup of best comments on Greek prime minister Yanis Varoufakis’ ill-timed photo shoot in French magazine Paris Match.
