Here is a visualisation of the top 25 most influential news media accounts on Twitter, based on the number of followers.

It is based on a list of the 100 most influential accounts, produced by Cornell University PhD student Daniel Romero.

There is more to influence on Twitter than the number of followers, as a visualisation by Journalism.co.uk shows.

Journalist invites others to join in with ‘liquid newsroom’ idea

German journalist Steffen Konrath has called on fellow journalists to help him revolutionise the way journalists interact with news over the internet.

Konrath, a web applications director from Munich, is busy building what he calls a ‘liquid newsroom’, for which he aims to gather journalists from all over the world to simultaneously tackle items in the news.

Konrath said: “A Liquid Newsroom would challenge the restrictions of space and organizational form. Instead of a given organisational type, the news site will come into existence from the time someone decides to open a topic.”

Google hires creators of ManyEyes visualization tool

Google has hired two of the leading researchers in visualization.

In an understated post entitled That was fast!, Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg announced that they had joined Google.

Viégas and Wattenberg led IBM’s Visual Communication Lab, where they created the ground-breaking collaborative visualization platform Many Eyes.

They left and set up Flowing Media a few months ago. But in the post dated August 5, the pair said they were “bidding the company adieu.”

Right now we’re at orientation in Mountain View, becoming, as they say, more “googley.” In the months to come we’ll be starting a visualization group in Google’s office in Cambridge, MA. We’re very excited about the possibilities!

This is a smart move by Google. It already has a lab project called Google Public Data Explorer that aims to makes large datasets easy to explore and visualize.
