Here is another of the Greater Roadrunner, actually running across the road. He was very challenging to shoot.

As astutely commented by John Larkin another Twitteronema (Twitter+Phenomena) is how fast software and web site creators respond when you toss a blog post, more more likely, tweet message into the tubes.

I’ve got my own long list of stories where this has happened, and sure I am not surprised as it is smart, maybe even necessary, for not only software makers, manufacturers, but any organization, blogger, group to be actively tracking mentions of it in the xxxxxx-osphere.

But the speed of response still makes me gasp sometimes.

At 2:11 PM MST I posted my complaint about the Animoto iPhone app not working. Through my TwitterTools WP Plug-in, it was tweeted about a minute later. And at 2:20 PM, I got a reply from Tom at Animoto with an explanation NINE MINUTES AFTER PUBLISHING.

That is one fast Roadrunner, even without a Coyote™ chasing you.
