Michael Jackson died of a heart attack, makes buzz on Twitter

Michael Jackson died earlier today and Twitter was ovewhelmed by people spreading the news or asking for more details. Like we got used to, Twitter was the first media where you could find out the news, right after TMZ made the official announcement.

This only means that social networking is indeed a helpful tool and chances are that traditional media will never have the possibility to deal with this. And one good reason I can think of is that it would take much more for a newspaper or a TV Channel to get the news life than it takes for a Twitter user to broadcast the story in 140 characters.

Michael Jackson Twitter

There were over 50,000 tweets about Michael Jackson’s death in just one hour, which means Twitter again did a great job at spreading the news and thousands of people were informed imediately. Considering 50,000 of them tweeted about it, there were probably a few hundred thousands or millions who actually read tweets about it. TV Channels also broadcasted the news pretty fast, but I’m glad to say Twitter was faster.
