Red Cross Micro-blogging California Wildfires
October 24th, 2007

Twitterers and Twits caught or living in parts of California afflicted by the wildfires can now follow the Red Cross coverage of this natural disaster with second-by-second status announcements. People can sign up for Twitter from their cell phones if they don’t have the service already and follow the redcross channel for updates by texting ‘FOLLOW REDCROSS’ to 40404. They can also add to the mix of updates coming in from the whole area by texting ‘FOLLOW SAFEANDWELL’ to 40404 and will automatically be followed in return. When we see the end of this fire, will there be an aggregate of words collected?

Here’s to everyone out there. We’re following you and hope you’re well.
