Mobile reporter roadblock: Why giving the world your iPhone number can be bad for business.

So, when I got my iPhone a few weeks ago, I sort of made the number available to the public.

It’s displayed above. I don’t care.

Afterall, as a mobile journalist, it’s basically an extension of my desk phone.

In an ideal world, people would use it for story ideas, inquiries about the paper, compliments on what an AWESOME job I did on my Sunday story.

And that’s mostly been what’s happened.

But I’ve also gotten a few peculiar texts.

I’ve started to label the sending numbers accordingly.

There’s “do not answer.”

There’s “weirdo.”

And then, there’s “antichrist.”

So, if I haven’t answered your texts, that means one thing:

Keep it strictly business, kids!
