Brooker wrote: "Am going to set up some kind of Newswipe tips Twitter account I think... all your tips very useful last time.

"We have HDD machines 'eating' all the 24 hr news output at Newswipe Towers, so if you spotted something on, say, Sky or News 24, we can tell from the time of the tweet when it was, and retrieve it. 'Tis very useful."

Charlie Brooker's Newswipe, a spinoff of the Screenwipe programme, was launched last year on BBC Four.
