For Press Gazette Twitter has become a major source of traffic.
Of the 117,000 visitors to the site we had last month, four per cent came in via Twitter – making it our biggest source of referrals after Google.
It’s also a handy way to keep in touch with what our readers are thinking through the more than 1,000 whose Tweets we follow.
