Plane crash Amsterdam

A lot of talk on the net through twitter, even on CNN and other media the focus is largely on the use of twitter for spreading the news. First time I notice this. Apparently media are determined to make twitter a success, or is twitter really a succes? Or am I just not following the news enough? I noticed twitter was used during the riots at the RNC last year. During the huricanes twitter use wasn't really very important. It seems today that the media are picking up twitter in a fast pace. Reminds me of the use of Ushahidi by Al Jazeera, crowdsourding in crisis areas, during the Israeli attack on Gaza.
