Within a matter of one minute–literally 60 seconds–I had been informed twice that information had just popped up on twitter that Michael Jackson has died.
I immediately think back to the death of Heath Ledger. Within two hours of his death, it was all a couple of my friends could talk about. Somehow, I have a feeling this Michael Jackson information is going to bombard me at least twelve hundred times more before the buzz dies down (no pun intended…).
New media is really becoming an amazing thing. With Twitter, people are in social contact and are connected to the rest of the world (well, other tweeters at least) 24 hours a day. I don’t understand why someone would want to be THAT connected, but I suppose for information junkies, this may be a good thing.
For the sake of not bombarding the rest of you with any more Michael Jackson hoo-fla, here’s a funny video for you all!
