It feels like I’m in Denver, Colorado, in the fall of 1861, watching the transcontinental telegraph line crawl towards me carried on donkeys. It was the age of instantaneous, global communication.
For the first time in history, the Oscars were Twittered. And I was among the top users Twittering the Oscars!
There were over 1400 twemes on the Oscars last night. For the uninitiated: A tweme is a twitter featuring a hashtag (#) and a particular subject tag. The Oscars are #aa08.
You can read last nights coverage but I can also give you my top twit of the night from user jesuspenis:
#aa08 sicko hahaha you guys have no health care
There is so much potential–with zero latency or waiting–to interpret/bag on/report on an event. For anyone for fun and/or in an emergency.
It is the age of instantaneous, global communication. Again.
