Twitter while you shovel?


The snow’s stopped and it’s time to dig out from the latest major storm.  A familiar situation for most of us in Wisconsin, right?  Grab your shovel, coat, gloves and…Twitter? 

The mayor of Newark, Cory Booker, added Twitter to the usual list of tools for cleaning up after the major snowstorm that hit the east coast, personally responding to tweets from citizens, promising to send road crews to areas still not cleared and even showing up in person to help dig people out.  This personal touch has gained him quite a bit of attention and praise from the media, bloggers and the rest of the “Twitterverse”.

So does this mean the people who don't Twitter aren't as likely to have their snow removed in as timely a fashion as their digitally divided neighbors?
