Reporting on death 140 characters at a time

When you think about it, 140 characters really isn’t enough space to convey a story. How can you put forth emotion, drama and depth when you’re restricted so much?

NPR’s Scott Simon may have found the way to do just that.  He is live tweeting, yes live tweeting, the death of his mother.

His tweets speak for themselves and are a great reminder that everyone has a story to tell even at the very end.
