Bad News Travels Fast Via Twitter

Those of you on Twitter can now follow ad agency layoffs via @adagencylayoffs. Not sure who’s behind it, but this is the kind of thing Adweek and Ad Age used to report on.
For ad folks, it seems that Twitter is used for both original pontification and links to blog posts and other media. You can also get tips on good gossip by following @AgencySpy.
Or follow your favorite AdPulp folks:

UPDATE: Learned that @adagencylayoffs was created by the AgencySpy folks.
