Twitter Publishes 'The 10 Most Powerful Tweets of 2010' [blog.twitter.com]
To choose the Top Ten Most Powerful Tweets, the Twitter team reviewed Tweets, news stories and international events from the past year. With more than 25 billion Tweets sent in 2010, narrowing the list to just ten Tweets was a huge challenge. The final selections represent the dynamic ways that people use Twitter in the political world, for disaster relief, and to add commentary to news events, sports and entertainment.

Powerful is the word that comes to mind for me, too. Astounding to see the innovative uses [yearinreview.twitter.com] that the world is finding for this upstart tech company.

International relations, disaster relief, life and death rescue, Ecuador declaring a state of emergency via Twitter. This is really unprecedented stuff.

For some of these, especially rescues and disasters, twitter is like an emergency service.

@ Katherinecz: You know, I used to ask the same exact question when Twitter was new to the web-world. Nowadays you're alerted to news, weather, disasters, etc. faster on Twitter than the leading news agencies both on television or Internet.

And possibly presumptuous and disconcerting that people issuing these messages expect by default that "everyone" is reading them or taking any notice of them whatsoever.

I tried to buy something online recently and my order was rejected by the system because I refused to give them my mobile phone number!

Their loss, not mine.
