I’d like to improve my Twitter bio. Any tips?


Make sure you have your full name spelled out. Include your news organization’s name (if you are a freelancer, say that and mention some regular outlets); your e-mail address; your office phone number. If you are brave, like @BrianStelter, put your cell-phone number. I have created a collection of effective Twitter bios: http://bit.ly/twtbios.
