The other day, I took a look at how the Associated Press used Twitter to cover the Sonia Sotomayor hearings.
It was a landmark experiment for that organization, and it seems the most extensive such project, fueled by a team of eight. But live tweets during the hearings weren’t limited to the AP.

The Associated Press is trying something it’s never tried before with its coverage of the Sonia Sotomayor hearings.
It’s providing round-the-clock tweets at @AP_Courtside, documenting every move of the hearings, allowing the general public easy access to some of AP’s best talent, and using feedback to direct the coverage itself. And that’s not all.
