Interviewed on media innovation research

These weeks, I am at the Centre for Research on Media Innovations at Oslo University on a visiting fellowship. It is great, and I will write a blog post on it later when I get home to Denmark.

As a part of the visit, I was interviewed on Twitter about my research yesterday. (The interview was conducted by the centre’s official Twitter profile but with Ida Karine Gullvik at the keyboard.) Here, I have put together the whole interview so it can be read as one conversation rather than a number of scattered tweets.

Enjoy – and join the conversation.

Tweeps all Danish j-students should follow

Almost three years ago, I compiled a list of the best Danish Twitter profiles about #journalism. But things move fast online, so I thought now was the time to put together a new and updated list – and also tied it close to the list that was the inspiration for the original listing, namely Sarah Marshall’s list of “100 Twitter accounts every journalism student should follow“.

So, here it my list of 15 people on Twitter, every (Danish) journalism student should follow – either because they might know where the profession and the media business is heading or simply because they often say something meaningful of interest:

Furthermore, the Danish journalism students should follow the hashtags #SDUjour, #rucjour, and #DMJX which are used on the journalism educations.

Who did I forget?

Update April 16, 2015: In the discussion following the publication of this list, two Twitter accounts have been mentioned as someone I forgot but who rightfully deserves special mentioning:

So, now it’s a list of 15 + 2 Twitter accounts

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.

  • @bo_elkjaer: Bo Elkjær, editor of Journalisten
  • @ernstpoulsen: Ernst Poulsen, digital/new media journalist

@ Twitter

Having attended arrangements with both Annette Markham (more coming up on her in my next post) and Astrid Haug this week, I realized that I needed to go on Twitter if I ever wanted to be able to figure out what’s going on there. And as a researcher of news and journalism on the web, I want to do that. I’ve been reluctant to sign up to more social media platforms but now I’ve decided to give it a try. I might not be the most active tweeter (is that what it’s called?) but I’m excited to see where it takes me.

You can follow me on

Update December 19, 2011: I just embedded my Twitter feed in the sidebar so that everyone who visits this website can see what’s going on. Enjoy.
