Sky News Twitter clampdown #savefieldproducer

Neal Mann aka @fieldproducer is one of the English-speaking jounalists on Twitter who opened the world up for me and showed what the social media can do/be used for. Now it seems that he no longer can retweet our tweets. This "we" includes me and possibly you, and Britain's Labour party leader, Sweden's foreign minister, the POTUS, and so on. What a loss if he can't "spread the word".

@kevinbakhurst @newsmary Not a problem. Sky News journos haven't provided any information for a long time now.

@gominokouhai That's just untrue. Obvious example is @fieldproducer but there are plenty of other excellent Sky journos on Twitter.

The policeman who chased himself... This story (via @fieldproducer) is going to be SO ripped off by UK sitcom writers:
Another P. K. Dick novel or reality? Sky News' new guideline
Kevin Bakhurst @kevinbakhurst
I'm told #SkyNews have stopped their journos retweeting information/tweets from journalists or people not working for Sky. Must be wrong??
Josh Halliday @JoshHalliday
@kevinbakhurst Good old @fieldproducer can't stop retweeting non-Sky employees – and he's the man who should know..
Kevin Bakhurst @kevinbakhurst
If that's true re #SkyNews - I can't see how they can engage on Twitter effectively? Must be wrong - someone tell me...
Kevin Bakhurst @kevinbakhurst
@benfenton no idea - it's so bizarre that maybe it's not right...but I was told it on good authority
