106055616 0 What Twitter Taught Us: A Social Network Cannot Kill Morgan FreemanIt was looking, for a moment, like we were headed to a weekend spent watching Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption, and March of the Penguins: Twitter was abuzz with news that Morgan Freeman had died. But thankfully, the tweets of his demise were greatly exaggerated; instead, it was a fake retweet of a CNN story that convinced the Twitterspere that the actor had passed. But Freeman’s publicist released a statement saying he’s “very much alive,” and we all breathed a sigh of relief. What else did Twitter teach us this week? Tons of great stuff! Go ahead and get educated before lapsing into the Christmas ham coma that will knock you out of commission for a week.
