The Sentinel launch Stoke News

Our local newspaper, The Sentinel, have today launched a new section of their website called Stoke news: The best of what’s going on in and around Staffordshire.

This gathers tweets from Twitter that include the hashtag #stokenews and puts them together, so that people have access to all the local stories and events that are taking place in the area.

This is great news for local businesses who should be able to get some publicity from the website – although I think tweets are manually selected according to the newspaper’s guidelines, so some editing will still take place.

It is great for The Sentinel too, as they are seen as embracing the community and coming together to provide a useful resource. Currently the service is a trial, which means that things will continually change and improve. I hope it manages to take off.
