Over the weekend my hometown was hit by some pretty nasty thunderstorms. While it wasn’t nearly on the scale of what happened in Joplin, MO, the word “tornado” was thrown around a few times in Facebook updates from people in the area.
I don’t live in the area any longer, I have friends and family who do. There are a few different news sources both in town, and regionally, that were covering the storm as it was happening.
But when I wanted to get information about what was happening, I chose Twitter over all of them.
