These new developments will offer Digital Media Wire's community of daily newsletter readers and event participants new means of interacting with one another as well as providing them with access to Digital Media Wire's database of over 25,000 news stories chronicling the most significant developments in digital media and the ability to receive time sensitive mobile alerts on breaking news.
