Twitter

So my brother and I came home from the Game of Thrones watching, and I figured I'd check email, Twitter, head to bed...

....to find that Twitter was telling me that the president was going to make a speech. At 10:30 pm, Sunday night.

Had to be important, although at first everyone (including me) made various jokes. But, you know, important. Shortly after that, Twitter started babbling about Osama. And then that Osama bin Laden was dead, and that members of the U.S. Congress were confirming this.

All before any of the news website had more than "The President is giving a national security speech at 10:30...."

Look, Twitter often gets it wrong. And I use it far more for casual conversations and chatter about roses and food and the Olympics and, well, most recently, making fun of people's hats at royal weddings. (And on a related note, telling me who the people wearing the hats are.)

But this isn't the first time where Twitter's been first.

Really don't have much to say about the actual news event right now. Maybe later.

Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital.

The Associated Press's words, not mine. I am sensing that it will be a long, long while before I can convince any male of my acquaintance to visit Congo with me now...
