Bozeman Explosion – The Twitter Effect

A few minutes ago my cousin’s wife updated her Facebook status looking for updates on the explosion this morning in Bozeman.  They live in Livingston, MT.  Their radio and TV stations did not have anything.

I did like many others and went right to Twitter Search to get the update.  Found a Livingston radio call-in show and am listening live now.  It’s amazing how once again the people are way ahead of the media.   I hope that the current status of no injuries or fatalities stays that way.
