Twitter bio: Traffic & Trends Editor for The Huffington Post. Founded @BreakingTweets. Into tech/journalism, social media, hockey, & genealogy.
Nominated by Steve Myers (@myersnews) and Meghan Peters (@Petersmeg)
"... in 2009, I heard about Craig Kanalley's website, Breaking Tweets, which used Twitter as a reporting source. Writers placed tweets in their stories in the same way traditional reporters would quote sources. Besides illustrating how journalists could use social media to find sources and gauge reaction to a news event, it was an innovative way to integrate social media into narrative journalism." -- Steve Myers
"He leverages real-time updates & community building in social media very well" -- Meghan Peters
