Iran Election

Twitter and other social networking sites are having a big influence in the Iran Election. All the controversy with voting has been tweeted in real time to millions of people. This is another example of how Twitter is spreading the current affairs faster than the actual news outlets. How will this change the way Journalism is brought to the masses. I have this feeling that news agencies that have not adopted or incorporated some aspect of social networking will be left in the dark! On a side note Twitter was to go through downtime for some site maintenance but due to the relevance of Iran elections it was postponed until later this evening.
This give you an indication of the power of Twitter and the current affairs of the world.
