AP finally activates Twitter, Facebook to help cover Haiti quake
As of this morning, the Twitter account was at about 3,600 followers, while the Facebook page had just over 1,000 fans.
It’s interesting to note the timing of the launches — was AP planning to launch these around this time already and decided to use this big story as a good jumping off point? Or maybe AP management was waiting for a “big” news story? It’s also worth noting the launches come on the heels of the end of Google’s hosting of AP stories.
