I saw this on my Tweetdeck just now!
Then I looked at Roomatic.com and entered Tsunami and watched the Twitter Stream live.
And then I found this from the Bureau of Meterology and find it is a 7.8 earthquake off the south coast of NZ.
Now I will wait for the media to catch up and hope I don’t need to pack my bags. I live at the beach in Sydney.
The power of the internet to get people into action! And perhaps create #TwitterHype!
