Does Twitter have a valid place in journalism? Or, rather, is it a bland, overwhelming and narcissistic medium, more useful for telling people about your shampoo preference than a way to engage readers? As with most things, the answer lies with whom the Twittering tolls. At its best, the site connects reporters, editors and photographers to sources and readers. Readers gain insight into why and how a story was discovered, reported and illustrated. This is my goal for the Burbank Leader account, BurbankLeader.

Audrey Robles doesn’t panic about the economic slowdown or the dwindling foot traffic outside her Kenneth Village store. Instead, she fires up her Twitter account. She also posts to her blog, monitors her Facebook page and adds to her biweekly e-mail newsletter. The media blitz may seem aggressive to those unfamiliar with the social networking tools, but Robles credits her efforts for not only keeping audrey k boutique in the black, but pushing it to new heights as well.

Good morning, readers. Today is Saturday, July 14, 2012. We'll start with a curious story that has stretched from Sherman Oaks to Woodland Hills.  Police have been looking for someone who has been shooting marbles and ball bearings into windows across the Valley . On Thursday, they arrested an unlikely suspect: A 58-year-old Encino investment broker who has an office in Beverly Hills. A BB gun and a slingshot were found in his home, but he has refused to talk about it.  Daily News In my three years of living adjacent to the Metro Red Line, there were always times I would have liked to jump on the train, if not for the midnight curfew.

A train coming from Lancaster was evacuated soon after a call came in at 12:36 p.m. regarding a possible bomb on the train at the station, located at 201 N. Front St., said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

This week, the Burbank Police Department took its online profile to a whole new level. With a new direct messaging system, the public now will be able to get up-to-the-moment public safety information via email, text message - or even a Tweet. A message might warn commuters to stay away from a traffic accident, or alert the public that police are searching for a dangerous suspect. Burbank's first venture into the world of social media comes through Nixle Connect, and on Friday, Burbank police's Twitter account, @BurbankPD , was activated.
