    I’m especially interested in the way Twitter can help to generate more interest in a published story.

    Justin Peters of the Columbia Journalism Review uses Twitter to share great ledes that he finds on various stories. He posts the lede along with a link. His username is @justintrevett.

    Already this appears to have helped create new readers for these stories, and opened discussions through Twitter about the ledes and why they do or don’t work.

    The way I see it, that’s one more example of Twitter’s effectiveness.
