Hurricane Irene highlights importance of social media

Check out this great article from CBS News on how Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites helped spread emergency information about Hurricane Irene. As slow as I was to warm up to Twitter, now I really see it's value as a very fast, very easy way to get important information out to a lot of people. The only problem is the very limited amount of people that use Twitter in rural areas such as ours. That's why we always say it's just one of the tools in our information toolbox.
