News in the age of Tweets

I don’t know how you found out bin Laden had been killed, but maybe it was relatable to mine. I googled it. I was watching Celebrity Apprentice.. Er, I mean, I was watching PBS when the screen shrunk and I was told to wait for an upcoming announcement from the President. I thought he was going to address the nation on the horrific storms that had devastated the South. So, I googled “Presidential Address”. And what I found instead were all of those blips from news stations all stating that He was going to announce bin Laden had Been killed.

Google told me because I was too impatient. Really, all i had to do was go to Facebook word spread like wildfire. Is this me in the electronic age?How did you find out?

  1. I first saw a RT from Cure (a non-profit for children with varying illnesses. oddly enough) of a news story saying that Bin Laden had been killed.
