Social media will slowly engulf the world until almost all media is social media. The process is already well on it's way. I really think Twitter might already be the best news source in the world, and you could actually probably consider Wikipedia social media as well. I think there`s going to be a day when all news and information will be completely word of mouth through things like this. Don`t be surprised if any other social networking sites from here on out take a page from Twitter. The best way I can describe it to people who don`t use Twitter is that if printed news is to people within a city, and e-mail is to people within the same neighborhood, and Facebook/Myspace are in the same house but different rooms, then Twitter is a giant party in one great big banquet hall. The banquet hall concept is the future.
Only downfall to Twitter and any other service that try to mimic them is that rumors get started and spread extremely easy.

Vorp- it is good, the fact that people have commented should show you that, despite having limited money. The fact fact that the subjects in your clip do not necessarily speak clearly is not too much of a problem as it adds to the debate. I do, however, think it would help if you practised the role of narrator. It is not me being picky ( I hope you can see it as a constructive comment LOL). Try playing around to see what different effects you can get with different narration, I suspect you will find it easy to change how the piece feels.
