This is a 'rough' timeline of select social media and online media activity surrounding the crash of US Airways flight 1549 on January 15, 2009. The timestamps, although somewhat accurate, are not absolute nor are they intended to reflect either positively or negatively on the actions of the authors/posters. Apologies for any major omissions. I should add that this is also restricted to the initial activity up to approx 9 AM on the morning of Jan 16, 2009. Video images caught of the crash itself (caught on security cameras) and other items are not included.

    Thanks for the comment. My intent was not to suggest that what happened was anything other than 'invertent' and unintentional. My point was more to show that such confusion can take place, particularly if there isn't total transparency and clarity. As we saw, some folks assumed you were an authorized spokesperson for US Airways, given the name, even though your profile indicated otherwise. Clearly people didn't even take the time to read that.

    Hope that helps to clarify the context of the slide.

    You could very well be right, although everything I've read to date suggests that the first photo was taken from an office building before the ferries had even gotten close (I'd have to dig up the links), a point that seems to be supported by the fact that there isn't a ferry in sight. All in all, both happened within minutes which simply reinforces the growing influence of citizen journalism during a crisis.

    cheers,

    Brendan
