Twitter - helpful posts, definitions, stats

Thank you so much for spreading the word about my feed. Thousands of people (and hundreds of twitter subscribers) have now been helped by using Twitter as a tool. But it's only the beginning of citizen journalism doing a better job than mainstream. Here's some ideas on what could be done better in the wake of this disaster. I would love your thoughts on it.
