Use Twitter in Emergencies or Disasters

This post describes a great way to contact your family and friends during an emergency. For example, a hurricane, a bridge collapse, a shooting, etc. Using Twitter notifies everyone of your status at once, and reduces the load on the cellphone network.

Great idea! If I could only get my family and friends to sign up for Twitter! If you want to "follow" me on Twitter, search for "HollyTriedIt" and add me to your list. Do this, and you'll always know if I'm safe and sound!
