I agree with you that twitter has become one of the fastest means for breaking news and the following subsequent updates from several perspectives.
However, since the report some 1 hour ago, there has not been very much, if at all, corroborating reports. Not to say there wont be, but 1hr is a
pretty long time for just the one report and a few "re-tweets". I look forward to see what unfolds next and the potential implications this could have
on the political landscape surrounding Syria.
Side note: I used Twitter to follow developments of the Zimmerman trial and the public attitudes on the matter. It is very informative as well as
horrifying, as you can see everyone's comments on the subject. It is a great tool for gaining insight into many perspectives of a topic of contentious
debate, include the OP.
People are afraid of all these secretive domestic surveillance programs, but the amount of information giving away willingly is all you
