Frantic micro-blogging at the BBC

BBC budget blog 2007An interesting take on blogging from Nick Robinson at the BBC. As the Chancellor was delivering his Budget to the Commons, Nick was delivering his thoughts to the blogosphere at a specially created Budget 07 ‘blog’.
But look again – lots of short updates in a very short space of time? You might call that ‘microblogging’… perhaps a classic use-case for last week’s darling of the blogosphere, Twitter?
If I’d had more time, I was going to register the Twitter ID ‘gordonbrown’, and twitterise the speech. But, like, I’ve got a day job. (And I’m quite proud to say I published my 600-word write-up of the speech within 30 minutes of Brown sitting down. 🙂 )
