Boston Shootings. Twitter bringing in the news. Nobody can compete wih this.

Fairly extraordinary stuff going on in Boston as Police hunt a suspect in the Boston Bombings. One has already been shot, so too a Police Officer and one is on the loose.

What's also extraordinary (and thanks to Mashable) is the tweets and pictures that are coming from the scene.

If ever you wanted to see Social Media in action for news, literally as it happens, this is it.

Extraordinary. 

No news organisation can compete with this amount of content simply because, every citizen with a smartphone is a journalist and they're all on scene.
