  3. 3. What is slow PR? “There's a need in PR for "nearness and care, and for a little love", which "is given only through slowness in [public] relations." -@gregory @twatan #slowpr
  4. 4. What is slow PR? “Technology has posed a huge challenge to everyone's attention span, especially journalists. PR pros can now blast thousands of journalists with the same message with just a few clicks of a mouse. As PR and marketing departments set their sights increasingly on bloggers and "influencers" (a loosely defined industry term for any person with more than a couple Twitter followers), many more civilians' inboxes will face the assault journalists are suffering right now. Just like any arms race, the trend has been about figuring how to blast more people more quickly. However, social media offers hope. As everyone opens up on Twitter, Facebook (FB) and other platforms, there's an opportunity to spend time understanding a journalist's beats and an influencer's interests like never before. Unlike the days of expensive industry phone books and fax machines, anyone today can build meaningful relationships through real human interactions globally using technology. If they use technology the slow way.” -@gregory @twatan #slowpr
