You know the impact is far reaching when it hits Twitter. Right?
Well, a new Twitter Profile says it is, “Your source for breaking news, video, photos, and volunteer information to help save the Gulf from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.” It links to Alabama Live, otherwise known as AL.com. It’s a good example of taking the news into your own hands—including providing live streams from Remotely Operated Vehicles showing oil spill activity on the ocean floor.
The site is supported in part by tourism ads showing white beaches, and has lots of consumer generated content and opinion. It also consolidates a lot of the Associated Press photographs, if you want to take a look at how the food from the Gulf really looks.
The Food Channel is bringing you recaps of some of the best stories from around the Web that will help us all learn more about the true situation in the Gulf. Stay with us as the story unfolds and let’s see what the future of food may look like in the wake of crisis.
