As one of my social media (and life) idols, Benet Wilson, explains in this blog entry, “If you weren’t using some form of social media … when US Airways Flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River, you were late getting news of the event.”

Wilson heard about the crash just moments after it happened via her Twitter account – and was able to stay ahead of the traditional media outlets by monitoring the incredible unfolding of events via “tweets” from folks looking out their windows.
So I’m in. Putting aside everything (lunch, articles due, the laundry) to get my Twitter account ship-shape so that next time anyone here is stuck at the airport – or if I am – we’ll know what’s up.
