One of my favorite pastimes when I have a moment to indulge is to connect with my Twitter friends from all over the world. On Thursdays, starting at 10pm EST, you’ll find me under the hashtag #mediachat where journalists converse in 140 characters to learn the latest in traditional and modern media.

Last night one writer I’ve been following, Linda Bernstein aka @wordwhacker introduced me to Newsle, an online service that updates you when your friends and connections make the news. It’s free and simple to sign up. Just connect to your social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Google…) and Newsle takes it from there. Best part is seeing who and how many friends are in the spotlight that you didn’t even know about. Enjoy!
