twitter stories

This blog, sleepy for a while, may yet become the home of a new course of action; I am doing research on Twitter. There are some things i haven't found homes for. This weblog is as good a place as any. Here are starters:

A story about Lance Armstrong and his bicycle; apparently the bicycle was stolen, but twitterers organized and found it rather quickly.

A story about a kidnapping somewhere in the Middle East; because of a successful tweet, the kidnappers were found out and the person was freed relatively quickly. How would one track down this story? It's a challenge.

One I might be taking up, I guess!
