This Revolution Will Be Twittered & Tweeted
An editorial in yesterday's Daytona Beach News-Journal asked the best question: Can we stop asking what Twitter is for, now? In the wake of the corrupt election in Iran, the massive protests and deaths, it became obvious that American media totally dropped the ball on coverage of what was happening over the weekend and continues today, most notably CNN. Where was the place to find news happening moment by moment? Twitter, of course. While cable news continues to play catch-up – and many news organizations have been banned by the government from gathering and reporting information – Twitter is still the place to find the latest news. Go to Twitter and follow the trending topic #iranelection. Photos, live reports and much more. This is what Twitter is for. Now.
