Baby steps into crowdsourcing

Today’s Social Media Month challenge:
Tweet about a story you’re working on that’s NOT for today’s web/tomorrow’s paper, and describe what kind of sources/information you’re still looking for.

This is a crowdsourcing approach. The idea here is that sources or other interested tweeters will reply to your tweet giving you the opportunity to get their information to talk to them on the phone or in person for help with your story. It’s also possible that some of your followers might retweet you in an effort to help spread the word about what you’re looking for, or might otherwise steer you to a valuable source of information for your story.

Find more information about crowdsourcing here and here.
