Journalists: Who Should You Follow on Twitter?

How does one keep up with videojournalism news, info, trends? First and foremost, by scouring hundreds of Websites and blogs every week. But we're also finding that Twitter is becoming an increasingly useful resource as media institutions and journalists are getting in the habit of concisely sharing their views and perspectives -- and links to their best work.

Hey Ken
Having been doing this since 1988 and having built entirely VJ-driven TV stations and even networks around the world, (and blogging on it since 2006 at www.rosenblumtv.com), I was a bit disappointed not to make your list. What does one have to do to get into the club?

Oversight corrected, with apologies and gratitude! Original twitter search turned up a lot of "rosenblum" but not "rosenblumtv" -- but now we're delighted to add it. Get in the club? You created the club!
