OMNT links of the week #1

Every week or so, we’ll point you to some stories we enjoy from around the Web. This is our first installment:

From Beatblogging, here’s a post about how reporters are being asked to do more online — without much help.

It turns out the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune have the greatest reaches of all newspaper Twitter feeds. (The Austin American-Statesman isn’t far behind.)

Amy Gahran tries to convince geeks that working with reporters is OK with this post on Poynter. (If only they knew.)

Stu Foster hates when people are jerks. Here are eight ways to, well, not be one.

Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV talks about how to capture social media success in a bottle.

Brian Solis writes about his favorite Twitter tools for reporters, public relations folks and community managers. Which tools do you like?

The Wall Street Journal declared that Twitter has gone mainstream. It’s about time.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media are still being snickered at, but at least it’s because the media are trying to do the right thing (although sometimes clumsily).

And, amid all this, the Army says Twitter could be the tool of terrorists (via Wired). We’re not sure that the adage of “all publicity is good publicity” applies in this particular case.
