I was watching Showtime (The Borgias) and a friend that I was IM’ing with told me the news, then i switched it over. So yeah, count another for ‘found it out via social media first’.
I do think the guy that tweeted it also shows another obstacle for any covert ops. Troops sneaking down a street can be outed by a curious kid on twitter with the right followers.
It can be pretty scary. As much as folks are worried about ‘big brother’ following them and ‘spying’ on them…their neighbors could be worse…because they have just as much of a right to tweet things on a public street as the rest of us have to expect folks to NOT tweet.
