The "Twitter for Newsrooms" launched today is a detailed resource to help professionals in news, TV, sports and entertainment use Twitter effectively. "Inside, you'll find resources to help you and your organization at every step of the reporting and publishing process," informs Twitter.

The guide contains advice including: ways to properly brand yourself, recommended tools, Twitter Intents, examples of reporters correctly using Twitter, and more. The resource is a great starting point for any new Twitter user, and should be an interesting hashtag for journalists to track.

"We know you come from different generations. Some are native to the pilcrow, others native to the hashtag. You began your careers in different media: radio, print, broadcast, online and mobile. But you share a common bond: the desire to make a difference in the world, bringing reliable information to the communities you serve.

While this group is diverse, we think Twitter and #TfN can be a kind of common ground--and we know Twitter is a tool all journalists can use to find sources faster, tell stories better, and build a bigger audience for their work," Twitter said.
