Track Gustav with Twitter

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Twitter, a site that lets users keep up to date with each other through short messages that can even be sent from cell phones.

One of the blogs I check regularly, BoingBoing, mentioned in a post about the hurricane that Twitter might be an interesting new way to keep with some of the Gustav goings on. The New Orleans Times-Picayune is even Twittering the storm. (Who knows, we might try something like that with bad weather here someday.)

Right now, it’s early and most of the messages are like this one: “ladycrumpet: Hoping Gustav miraculously weakens but if not that ppl have gotten out in time.” — but to check out how people are communicating with it, follow THIS LINK.
