Tweets and Twisters

This morning's read from NPR, about Social Media and Weather and News Reporting....

Makes me think of the tornado outbreak that blew through this neck of the woods about four years ago.  I worked a longass day that day.  Followed news on TV and Twitter that night.  One particular set of tweets, about the storm that ran through Ringgold, with tweets about one of the sister stores of the company I work for being completely destroyed.  That set of tweets, retweeted by news twitter feeds as well as individuals, was incorrect.

Food for thought, for yours truly, especially since the bulk of my news comes from social media, anymore....
