Redeeming Twitter

"The U.S. State Department asks Twitter to delay maintenance plans for the weekend so Iranians voting in Friday’s election can communicate instantly, and defeated candidate Mirhossein Mousavi uses Twitter to organize protests against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Beating even The New York Times, a ferry passenger on the Hudson River uses Twitter to deliver the first reports and pictures of U.S. Airways Flight #1549's emergency landing."
