Saw a news blurb last night from a tracking group which said that there were over 1 million tweets about Ferguson before CNN began carrying it in prime time.
Amazing. I keep telling people that if you are a news junky, sports junky, weather junky and want to know things before the top of the hour, start following reporters, sports writers and teams, weather people (Chester Lampkin!).
We just got Dale a Twitter page and even though he most likely won't be tweeting much of anything, he now has a list of people he can follow during the day for up to the minute news.
