I enjoyed being a small part of the Guardian News blog coverage of the snow across the UK today. The editorial team included a component on the page which looked for tweets from a selected list of twitter accounts when the hashtag #uksnow was included. So having been included on the list I had the opportunity to send a few tweets with that hashtag and let more people than usual know about the delights of my daily commute.
It was a quick, effective and relatively easy way of showing real time coverage of an event that had an impact across a wide area. Alongside the UK Snow map which shows pictures submitted to twitter with a postcode, I thought it was a really cool way to cover the big freeze.
