ALTHOUGH MANY BREAKING stories emerge on Twitter, you often need to sift through the casual and banal to find info that matters--unless you enjoy the signal-to-noise ratio of @MagicRecs.
While listening to a report on RTE Morning Ireland through the static of our kitchen radio (shown below), a Twitter direct message from @MagicRecs suggested there was a back story related to the talking points of the day. In this instance, I learned @sulliview was recently followed by two journalists. Margaret @sulliview Sullivan is the New York Times public editor. I follow no fewer than 45 journalists on Twitter.
