The local news carried the story, but the first media report didn’t come from a TV news crew. It came from a “reporter” named “@matt_is_a_nerd” who scooped all the other media outlets at 7:08 with his Tweet:Before the local news was able to scramble their trucks to go set up a live shot, Twitterer “@theGlenn” published the first photo:Minutes later,  @Mike_Thieltwitpic’ed the photo of the actual SUV in the hole that has since gone viral:That photo ended up on all the local TV stations and by the next morning, even NBC’s Today Show was showing it.
