Twitter and the Bangalore bomb blasts at the Frontline

I was supposed to be finishing off a chapter of the PhD today but events put paid to the plan.

Instead, I've been following the Bangalore bomb blasts on the Frontline blog.

I wanted to track how Twitter could be used for breaking news and compare it with the BBC's coverage. Paul Bradshaw, from the Online Journalism Blog, has already done this for the earthquake in China. But because of the focus of my work - war, terrorism and the BBC - I felt this story might be a good one to follow on the off-chance that it might develop into a useful case study.
