If you haven't heard yet, a 5.4 magnitude earthquake hit Los Angeles yesterday. How did I find out? Twitter of course! Not only can Twitter inform you of what your pals are doing and help you resolve customer service issues, but it can now be a source for news and getting you the deets before it can hit the wire!
The Twitter Blog is reporting that updates about yesterday's quake began coming in a whole nine minutes before it was reported on the AP news outlet, making Twitter the place to hear news first. With millions of members around the globe, and the ability to Tweet from your mobile device, I'm really not surprised! Do you Twitter newsy events, or are you strictly a social Twitterer?
