Twitter & Denver Continental Airlines Crash

In an amazing case of citizen journalism and addiction to Twitter Mike Wilson broadcasted live from the crash site of a Continental Airlines flight at the Denver International Airport. Check out his tweets at http://twitter.com/…inksbehind

Glad he is safe and on to his final destination, Houston.

Next time a breaking news event happens check Twitter. This is a very similar social media and citizen journalism combo as was Flickr with photos. The difference of course is photos but the culture on Flickr isn’t necessarily conversational as the culture on Twitter is.

Happy Holidays!
