Swine Flu Info and another Twitter Case Study

Though I haven't been following it closely I see that Swine Flu is on the front of page of CNN and all over Twitter.

For reliable info, I'd suggest checking out @CDCemergency on twitter. It has links to press conferences, breaking news and articles, such as this one: How to take care of someone at home with Swine Flu.

If you want to get these update sent to your phone just send the text follow cdcemergecy to the phone number 40404.

I just love how Twitter can be used by anyone to setup a quick information site like the CDC Emergency. Whether it's a national emergency like this, or your local Boy Scout troop, you can keep everyone in sync with latest information.

See, Twitter is more than just a distraction.
