Twitter on publishing revisited: IP and the creative economy
Last summer (2011) I wrote a series of posts reviewing Twitter accounts that provided useful sources of information on:
- writing and authorship
- language and editing
- the book industry supply chain and readership
- the creative economy and IP.
Twitter doesn’t stand still for long. It is time to revisit and refresh those reviews.
I follow a number of professionals from a range of creative industries, notably architecture (@cymcewan), design, and typography(@JeremyTankard). One of my favourites is @55cards, managed by game designer Brett J. Gilbert. Game design intrigues me – in its own right and for its potential parallels with authorial and publishing processes. The account is pleasantly idiosyncratic, with a strong personal voice.
My account of choice on IP continues to be @copyrightgirl (Emily Goodhand), who continues to provide a great service by tweeting updates on legal cases and policy developments.
