Danish Twitter profiles about #journalism

A service for my Danish-speaking readers primarily: inspired by a list of 100 English language Twitter profiles, which every journalism student must follow, I have made a Danish list. It is a lot shorter as it includes only 15 Twitter profiles that are good resources for people who want to follow current developments within Danish news media and journalism. The list (presented in alphabetical order) is somewhat idiosyncratic and hardly exhaustive, so let me know if I’ve forgotten someone or gotten something wrong, then I’ll revise the list later.

  • @Ahaheder: Ahaheder.dk, research-based web magazine on journalism
  • @bo_elkjaer: Bo Elkjær, editor of Journalisten
  • @ernstpoulsen: Ernst Poulsen, digital/new media journalist
  • @fiwa: Filip Wallberg, associate professor at the University of Southern Denmark
  • @julie_h_toft: Julie H. Toft, journalist at MediaWatch.dk
  • @KaareSorensen: Kaare Sørensen, journalist at Jyllands-Posten
