You heard it first on...Twitter!

Just heard a story about Twitter via The Financial Times.

The story centres on an incident in Germany that has been dubbed "Twittergate" - no originality there!

What it concerns is a Twittering German MP who broke the news of the new German Prime Minister via, you guessed it - by "Tweeting".

Here's an extract from the article:

The news that Hörst Köhler had been elected again on Saturday was published on Twitter's micro-blogging service almost 15 minutes before the result was officially announced.

Julia Klöckner, of chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU, told her Twitter "followers" that afternoon: "People, you can watch the football in peace. The vote was a success."

Kelber, of the SPD party, was even more specific, prematurely uploading the result of the vote-count to his micro-blog: "The count is confirmed: 613 votes. Köhler is elected."


Klöckner has since resigned.
