Hubby and I first heard that President Obama was going to make a "big" announcement via twitter.
And like the rest of the United States Hubby and I sat on our couch in anticipation for what President Obama was going to say. We had our channel on fox news. A few minutes after 9:30 pm central Fox News announced Osama Bin Laden was dead. Within seconds twitter lit up.
For me it was a historical moment watching the news unfold via twitter. It gave me chills.
Why was it so moving?
Because there were 9/11 widows, friends, and military wives that you may not have ever come in contact with in real life but via twitter you could console, thank and love on.
I could see people real time pictures and videos of people gathering at the World Trade Center before it was broadcasted on TV.
It is where I first saw former President Bush's comments.
And it has been reported that this man tweeted about the Osama Bin Laden raid without knowing it. (read from the bottom up)
And last week during the tornadoes it was twitter that was sending out the first pictures and video of the tornado and it's devastation.
So my question for you... If you are not on twitter, why not?
