How to Sort Good information from Bad on Twitter

Friday, November 02, 2012


Last week's storm highlighted Twitter's role as a useful (and occasionally infuriating) source of information during an emergency. OTM producer PJ Vogt talks to Bob about how to find accurate information on the platform while mostly avoiding the chaff.

I don't believe I heard the producer recount any piece of information that had a bearing on any important event.

The and transit websites have been surprisingly un/under maintained during this storm. WNYC was the best source of information overall, and the best information source for Dept of Sanitation is currently--gasp--that factory of lies, Twitter.
