This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 10-19


People often ask me what Twitter is good for. I'm not as intensive user of Twitter as some others I follow, but I had an interesting story about Twitter that I thought I'd share.

TBS was supposed to broadcast last night's American League Championship game between Boston and Tampa Bay, but at the start of the game TBS was showing reruns. What was up? I quickly turned to Twitter and did a search for #redsox. This gave me immediate access to three things:

  • someone reported that TBS was having problems in Atlanta that had knocked the game off the air
  • the play-by-play was being posted someone else, so I could follow the game
  • someone else pointed out that the video feed was still live on the TBS web site

So, who needs TV when you have Twitter?
