Chris Hamilton, BBC News Social Media executive, has blogged about Laura K keeping her twitter account while she moves from the BBC to ITV:

Since the move was announced there has been a wide range of comment and speculation about what would happen to her Twitter account. Would she re-label it, taking it and her 60,000 followers with her? Or would she leave it, to be effectively closed, or handed over to her successor?

For almost two months, discussion has moved across twitter, the blogosphere, and newspapers. Tom Callow said the BBC had "lost 60,000 twitter followers to ITV". Martin Belam looked at 41 of those followers, and found that all but five followed another BBC Twitter account.
