You Heard it Here

G and I were watching The Amazing Race last night when I glanced through my Twitter feed and saw that the President would be giving a late night press conference. G is politically obsessed so he started surfing his usual sites to see what he could find out what was going on before the president spoke.

I kept checking Twitter and about an hour before the conference started I saw numerous tweets reporting that Osama bin Laden was dead. Sure enough, later the news media started reporting the same thing. The power of Twitter is amazing! Even if you don’t want to get your own Twitter account, you can search public feeds and check out trending topics.
