How I experienced Obama’s victory speech.

It was the 5th of November 2008

It was a great night and one that change how news are experienced. I had on my Mac ABC news live, UStream, Twitter-election US, and Twitterrific. On my telly, I was swapping channels from CNN, RTE, Sky News, to FOX. But it was an amazing experience just being able to heard the voices of loads of people through Twitter, that had previously reported live the results from their own neighborhoods, cities and states. I think Twitter changed for ever how we experience ‘the event’, on real time and hyper-commented.

So now I wonder, how will I experience the Inauguration Speech? on Twitter and Current

Follow the Inauguration Speech, and make it yours


Head to Current and learn more: “Current & Twitter have teamed up again. We’re adding your real-time Twitter messages (“tweets”) over our live broadcast of Barack Obama’s Inauguration.”

Twitter got there first

“There’s a plane in the Hudson. I’m on the ferry going to pick up  the people. Crazy.”
Janis Krums was the first person to offer an image and a commentary of the incident, through TwitPic.

Update: Some great compilations of various reports from kottke.org ‘Hudson River plane crash’, including a terrifying video of a similar incident, and in Flickr. On other media:

On the press:
EL PAIS: A salvo los 153 ocupantes de un avión que cayó en el rio Hudson de Nueva York 
LA TIMES: All safe after US Airways jet goes down in New York’s Hudson River
The Guardian: Plane crashes in Hudson river in New York
There is more in Google if you care to search.
And guess what, Once again, Twitter proves its worth as it happened with the Mumbai terror attacks

That is the real NEW in this event: Twitter is worth. It is an incredible tool for communicating as it happens.
You just can not be a photographer, a journalist, an academic, or just a citizen, and not know about Twitter
