If we’d had Twitter on 9/11
AUGUST 9, 2010
Because I can imagine how I’d have instinctively, obsessively pulled up my feed, to check the pulse of the planet again and again and again. We were surprised when we reached a roadblock just West of El Paso. I was also surprised that El Paso, TX is only the half-way point between LA and Austin. I remember the chair I was sitting in when I first scrolled through my Twitter feed and learned of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
