Once again, Twitter's immediacy captures the imagination of millions. A young woman takes a lovely shot of the space shuttle launch on her iPhone, tweets the image to her followers and is soon fielding calls from major broadcasters.
And it turns out even country presidents can't resist punching it out with journalists on Twitter. Paul Kagame, president of Rwanda, took exception to a British journalist call him “despotic” in a tweet. "For an hour, the two men tussled back and forth in 140 characters or less, jabbing at each other in furious tweets in an unprecedented battle between a head of state and a social media user."
Who says Twitter can't be a place to do battle over reputation?
