We've had three earthquakes in the Bay Area this week. The first one was Wednesday and I was on the BART heading to Berkeley. The second was last night. And we just had another one this morning in the same spot at the same magnitude (Berkeley, 3.5-ish). Each time, the first thing I do is Twitter it and then read my friends Twitters. You get news of an earthquake within 5 seconds of somebody experiencing it on Twitter. It's comforting to see people joking and complaining.
