Dutch public radio brings news on the hour to Twitter

NOS, the Dutch public radio, has introduced the concept of hourly news bulletins to its Twitter feed.
The two minute “audio updates” are specially produced for Twitter, but are based on the news that is broadcast on youth service 3FM. A link to the audio appears on the top of every hour in the Twitter feed of NOS Nieuws (@NOSHeadlines), which also includes individual news pieces and listener reactions. The service is available from 7am to 7pm on weekdays and 8am to 3pm on weekends.
“It’s a part of our policy to offer our programming to as many people as possible through as many channels as possible. We do it via radio, television, the Internet, mobile applications and now also via Twitter” says Hans Laroes, editor of NOS Nieuws, in a press release from NOS.
