Twitter and the News!

It's interesting to see how media outlets are using it to get information to report news or info that maybe important to you. A good example is a local popular morning show here in Toronto called "BreakFast Television". They invite you to Tweet or email your stories to them to broadcast to other viewers. It's an excellent idea to get "Breaking News" as it happens. Another great example is to get quick "Traffic Updates" in your area. This shows how technology adds a new way to interact and influence are media which is very powerful and effective way of communicating and being social at the same time.
