Indonesia’s most followed media on Twitter

SINCE TWITTER TOOK OVER the media “role”, the large media organizations see this as an opportunity to reach and engage their readers online.

That idea is totally valid. When it comes to breaking news and exclusive news, everyone still relies on mainstream media. Public always wanted to get the confirmed informations and the in-depth stories from the media guys, because they  have their own infrastructure, networks, editors, writers and reporters.

If you are into Indonesian news and updates; and love Twitter, you’re so lucky. You can follow a bunch of local media Twitter accounts –some of them have thousands of followers (please keep in mind that only media with than 10,000 followers added to the list).
