Of the many different uses for Twitter, its ability to quickly broadcast important information is certainly one of the most valuable. Followers all around the globe can follow real-time news as soon as it hits the wire. For those living in parts of the US that are prone to severe weather, Twitter can give them the warning necessary to evacuate quickly and get out of harm’s way. For other severe weather enthusiasts, storm-chasing Twitter accounts publish stunning photos of weather phenomenon and love to share interesting science tidbits about our planet’s climate.
