Journalist Offers Bite-Sized PR Tips

Last Updated Sep 17, 2008 6:26 AM EDT

If reading PR tips in blog items like this takes too long, you should check out Rafe Needleman's ProPRTips. He offers PR tips in bite-sized chunks that look like they came from Twitter.

The reason they look like "tweets" is that, in fact, they are tweets. Needleman started offering his PR tips on Twitter and then decided to post them as a blog too, for those of us not yet into Twitter.

Examples:

It would be good if your product ships before the T-Shirt you gave me wears out.
