Over two years ago Muck Rack launched the definitive list of journalists on Twitter. Now we’ve assembled a list of journalists on Google+ by going through the 500 most followed journalists we’ve verified on Muck Rack. It so happened 140 (an omen?) of those 500 were on Google+. If you need link bait you could even extrapolate that to mean 28% of journalists on Twitter have joined Google+.
It’s a good list (click the link to see the full thing), but we have to admit we’re not huge fans of Muck Rack’s seeming favoritism of people affiliated with news organizations over those not … look, I have ties to a newspaper, but I don’t use them with my social media presence in any way whatsoever. I feel journalism is less about where you work these days, and more about what you do — it’s the reputation, stupid.
