Twitter helped Haiti…Iran…whatever…

While I have been using twitter, I have seen the tweets coming inside civil unrest, that hasn’t made my mainstream news. I have read tweets from inside some of the biggest news events in the past year. I saw the pictures of the inside of Tehran Un…

No longer surprised. Wankers.
