If it's THAT important, I'll read or hear about it 5 minutes later than the twitter drones.
Agreed. If you don't subscribe to them, then it doesn't have to be that way. I don't, and mine isn't.

If you're into a daily download of info, twitter isn't the answer. If you're following a story closely (Mario Williams signing, Congress working down the wire on some new law, etc) twitter is far further ahead than five minutes.
