Twitter, news, Minority Report and the future.

Its amazing to me what can be “broadcast” in 140 characters.  But what I came to realize this morning is Twitter is a perfect example of what the internet can do for something like the news.  It decentralizes how news is covered.  Which is exactly how the the internet keeps us all connected.
