The Leadership challenge of Gillard was broken by Twitter…and information on it came quick and fast through Twitter. The information spread of it is concise and comprehensive at the same time. What I mean is that there are so many ‘citizen journalists’ monitoring far more media outlets that one person could…but you can monitor Twitter.
It is a central, real time source of information.
Want to know what is happening, and how it is happening in #ausvotes 2010?
It will all be about Twitter.
