I immediately clicked on CNN and then MSNBC on my TV to see, but there was nothing new there, no "breaking news," nada.
I went back to my Twitter feed, plugged in the search "Boston," and a flow of tweets flooded in. Details, reports and many, many assumptions were being made about what was happening. Some of my Facebook friends were impressed by the power of social media during this important national news event. Fellow blogger Whit Honea wrote, "If you aren't on Twitter now is the time to join. The news coverage happening on there re: Boston/Watertown is amazing." Another wrote, "Man, Twitter is doing SUCH a better job of covering this than the TV n...Read More »
