Thanks for the article! The sad thing is, as you describe it, the way the fire department was using twitter, they weren't even taking advantage of it as social media, but merely as a broadcast tool, and it seems wholly appropriate.

Is there more to the story? Following your link, I found the twitter account (@dcfireems), and it looks like it may have resumed sending out information.
