Where were you last night when you first heard about Osama bin Laden’s death?

If you were like me, you were on Twitter. The micro-blogging/social networking giant reports: “Last night saw the highest sustained rate of Tweets ever. From 10:45 – 2:20am ET, there was an average of 3,000 Tweets per second.” The graphic:

From vanity platform, to grass-roots organizing vehicle, to revolutionary samizdat, to global water cooler, people around the world have tailored Twitter for their diverse needs from the petty to the grand to the historic.

You can fear the flood of new information, as this writer does.

Or you can give thanks for the ever-evolving, freedom-enhancing communications tools at our disposable.

We live in amazing times.
