Twitter & Chino Hills Earthquake


At the moment I am working on presentation for tomorrow and I stumbled across this great graph aptly showing that I was definitely not alone while tweeting about the earthquake and watching the Twitterverse.

The LA Times Technology Blog had a great post yesterday, SoCal earthquake has everyone a-Twitter, describing how earthquake reports spread through the microblogging service.  This is based on data provided by the Twitterblog.  Its interesting how the earthquake was already starting to become old news (based on the number of tweets) as the AP finally issued its story.  Just another example of how in such a large world, we are starting to become more and more connected.  Well, that is as long as you have a cell phone or an Internet connection.
