Innovative Idea -- Automated Weather Tweets

I've already noted that I believe hyperlocal content extends past news. Some of you also know I have a touch of weather geek in me. So, this post on TechCrunch caught my eye.

"A young man by the name of Dave Osborne built an interesting project called SWASAlert, a super-speedy weather severe alert service that supplies super fast weather alerts via Twitter and SMS," wrote TC.

This is an interesting use of Twitter and if the alerts are GeoTagged, they could be plotted on a watch and warning mashup, which would be pretty cool too.
