Headline Shorty Headline Twitter

Amy Wood WSPA TV CW was nominated for a Shorty Award!

News anchor who "got" twitter 2 plus years ago, as soon as viewers told me about it. As an early adopter, got to pioneer the use of twitter and facebook comments on tv, before the CNN folks thought about it. Enjoy the exchange with viewers featured on WSPA's 7 and 10 news.
