There’s a bomb in my technorati

As you’ve probably already seen, there was a bit of a kerfuffle in one of my old journalistic-stamping grounds, and hometown, Exeter, earlier when somebody walked into a restaurant, seemingly with a bomb, and managed to injure… themselves and nobody else [1].

Me being the social media hound that I am (and no longer in Exeter), I’ve been tracking the news as it breaks online and have a few thoughts about how traditional media brands could utilise tools to turn good coverage, both online and offline, into super-fantastic coverage both online and offline.

I’ll update later after a session in the gym, but in the meaning, a question:

Two tools I flirt with using are Technorati and Digg. What, in your view, is the best way to maximise use of these?

    I tend to use Technorati only when I’ve noticed a referral to my blog via my statcounter. I haven’t a clue how best to use it but for the tagging – but since I tag things strangely it doesn’t often apply.

    This story’ll grow though. Apparently the device only partially set off – and another was nearby?

    I must say I thought of you when it broke, though.
