Weekend read: My weekly share on Twitter, with favorites

This week, Twitter once again proved its mettle during the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I turned there first for updates, and I have the utter luxury of getting those from some first-class reporters who tweet, including NBC's Jim Long or @newmediajim (who tweets from the cameraman perspective); NPR's Andy Carvin or @acarvin, who's a live-tweeter of the first order; and the New York Times's Patrick LaForge or@palafo. Nice to have that kind of expertise to fall back on. Even the reporting errors got quickly corrected, and ways to handle breaking news discussed.  Mashable did a good roundup of the shooting from the social-media perspective.
