Is Twitter Spreading The Flu?

More

Elaboration: is Twitter responsible for spreading the swine flu panic? (According to the CDC, all of the 20 confirmed US swine flu sufferers are doing fine....)    Or is it providing more/better information that the government?  I'm not sure...  In the meantime, here are a fight sites/twitterers to follow.  The CDC's Swine Flu Page is comprehensive.  This guy is well-versed and smart on the relevant issues. USDA has a good Q and A page that all us journalists are stealing from.  This page tracks the new verified cases worldwideWHO's doing a better job? Not sure.
