Follow animal rights law suit on Twitter

You can follow news of an animal rights law suit, on behalf of elephants in Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey circuses, on Twitter, by following BornFreeUSA. You can link by clicking on the title to this post. If you are already registered in Twitter, log in, and then click on the link or search for BornFreeUSA and choose to follow. Otherwise, you can go to Twitter and register. Then, follow the instructions.

Other events that have been posted on Twitter include the plane that landed in the Hudson River recently, the terrorist attacks in Bombay (in both of these cases, regular folks at the scene with PDAs or at desks with computers or laptops tweeted what they were seeing live -- 'way ahead of professional news), and the Mars Rovers (NASA tweeted the Rovers' results). Cool, huh? They just released the transcript of audio tapes from the Hudson River plane crash and folks are Tweeting that even as I blog.

You can search real time on Twitter. Go to the bottom of your Twitter page and click on search. You can also enter a phrase in your regular twitter window with a pound sign (#) in front: #marsrover and if anybody is tweeting that at the time, it will bring it up.
