The three journalists that I have chosen for this module are
- Tim Gilbert
- Yvonne Sampson and
- Lara Pitt
The first journalist I have chosen is Tim Gilbert. He tweets regularly on what’s happening on the Today Show, and what is happening in the world of news, and recently he tweeted about Malcolm Turnbull being voted as our New Prime Minister saying “Personally I think Malcolm Turnbull is the right person to be Prime Minister at the moment, politics is a bloody game @TheTodayShow”
For all the journalists I have chosen, I would have to say that Tweeting is a key part of their job as a journalist, and I believe that is part of their practice, because it is a way of delivering news to the public.
Tim Gilbert and Yvonne Sampson are colleagues and they both work for Channel 9, and they do promote their work, in their information which says that they work for Channel 9, and they highlight what their job title is.
Lara Pitt is the same, her Twitter is called Lara Pitt Fox Sports, and she tweets quite regularly about the happenings in sport, and in particular the NRL, because that is the sport she is involved with most of the time.
