yes, but what's the point in getting it? I mean, I do use SMSs myself, when I know who I'm speaking with. I can use twitter much in the same way get a list and lurk on what you guys tell each other.
But what's the net value? I either want to see (no mediation) then I look at the pics (most photographers in the planet seem to be here already, we had images way before the BBC even dreamed about it), or I want to read a report. Honestly, today there were 3 sentences one could get from twitter:
1) bomb exploded
2) guy shooting on a kid camp
3) guy arrested, he's Norwegian.
It's not a football game, there's not much depth you can get from reading short things. I repeat, I understand YOU need it. Seconds mean money to you, because it's your job. But I don't get paid for knowing things first, so I have other needs.
