Plane crash in NYC captured on real-time web

Twitter and friendfeed, about 50 minutes ago, erupted with info about a plane crash in NYC.

One of the first photos (as reported on Silicon Alley Insider) was made by Janis Krums on his iPhone and posted to Twitter. He was on one of the first ferries to get to the scene, just minutes after the crash.

When I started doing Twitter searches for the word “plane” there were about two tweets every 10 seconds coming in. Within minutes that went up to 200 to 400 Tweets every few seconds.

There were tons of first-person accounts too.

The pilots are heroes. They landed the plane in water safely and got everyone off, according to current reports. That’s just amazing. The water temperature is in the low 40s. That’s not survivable, but as you can see from Janis’ photo everyone got into life rafts.

WOW @jkrums posted the first photo of Hudson plane crash from an iPhone. Amazing photo! http://ad.vu/2hrc – he was in first rescue group.

  2. this incident, while extremely unfortunate, is a great success story for twitter. After the crash everyone I spoke with asked me if I had heard about it. I was able to tell them that I knew about it moments after it happened via twitter. That’s real power. Twitter users get their news faster than anyone else.
