The day Twitter kicked CNN’s behind


Yesterday is the day when Twitter thoroughly beat CNN. Badly beat CNN. Embarrassingly beat CNN. And most other USA-based media too.

Yup. If you wanted real news about Iran yesterday (and today too), you won’t find much on mainstream media. Instead it’s on Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed, and blogs. Real time as it’s happening by people who are there. Then instantly retweeted and reblogged everywhere.
