Bloggers / News Writers / News Aggregators / Viral News Writers Needed for Entertainment & News Blog – The Urban Twist

What's your "Twist"? Are you a freelance writer that is looking to get your name out? Do you specialize in writing reviews of films, music, movies, etc.? Do you specialize in blogging about politics? Do you specialize in Sportswriting and reporting? Do you specialize in news reporting, in general? Do you know how to discover news that’s about to go viral and reporting on that news? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, we might have an opportunity for you. TheUrbanTwist.com is a leading News Aggregator and Original News publication that currently employs dozens of online writers. We give our opinions or “twist” to the news that primarily details and define “urban” culture but doesn’t entirely make that the focal point of each story. Stories should be relatable and identifiable amongst different sects of people. Our platform currently reaches more than 300,000 readers per month. The Urban Twist is a Google News, Yahoo News and Bing News included website. The Urban Twist is currently seeking up to 100 News Writers to join our rapidly expanding team of writers as The Urban Twist continues to grow with more writers, new areas of coverage and a recently redesigned website. We want people looking to assist with daily updates and helping to expand our content. Basically we need you to help get our website fresh. AREAS OF WANT – Trending News & Topics
