This Is Why The Internet (And Twitter) Wins

Undoubtedly by now you've heard about Tiger Woods' car crash. Early reports had him in serious condition (which remember, is better than critical condition) after he apparently hit a fire hydrant and a tree while leaving his home in his SUV. The latest reports say he has been released from the hospital and is "fine." But I'm not going to speak to any of that because that's not what we do (you can find out more here ). Instead, as I'm watching this unfold infront of my eyes on the Internet, I'm reminded that this type of story is exactly why the web is destroying newspapers, and should eventually even take down television and the main source of news for most people. I first heard the news via a BNOnews bulletin sent via push notification to my iPhone. I immediately pulled up Twitter and already some 10-15 people had retweeted it and the news was appearing in my stream.
