Channel 6 and Channel 10 have not yet left the stone ages. While Channel 4 twitters and builds a relationship with its viewers, the others continue to lag behind. And they’re lagging behind even further.
Now, Channel 4 is beginning to use Brightkite, which is a location based social network. You check in at a location and then all your posts, including uploaded photos, are associated with that location until you change it.
Channel 4 videographer Andy L. is leading the charge. Recently he’s posted photos from the news chopper and from today’s tornados (?). Since I’m a brightkite friend of Andy’s, I have the ability to have his updates sent directly to my phone. So when he’s out on assignment, I can get a preview of the stories he’s covering. Very cool.
