Twitter For Local Events

Twitter may be more than conveying ‘what you are doing’ news within a friends network. Twitter can deliver very local news. There is a site that ties Twitter to what is happening around the online user:

near.ly sends you links to news and blog posts happening within 1000 feet of any address in the United States. nearlies are sent via Twitter direct messages…”

This is yet another reason for not having to push away the computer. Twitter is giving you the local news. And now you have upped your trivia quotient. You know what a “nearlie” is.
