When Twitter is good

So, this isn't an "I hate Twitter" post. I'm really liking Twitter the last 48 hours. It's the only way to get instantaneous updates from Iran. I've only been following JimSciuttoABC, who is an ABC reporter on the ground there. He and Nick Kristof have been retweeting others' posts, and of course you can hashtag search. #iranelectionPicture source: Boston.com

The cable news media failed. CNN and Fox did very little coverage of the Iranian election results. Old friend The Great Moose has a couple posts on it here and here, including more people you can follow.

I also got the news about Jodie Meeks not returning to UK directly from Coach Cal via Twitter.

And I'm enjoying John Piper's posts.
