Twitter Faster On Tiger Woods Accident News
At a time when media mogul Rupert Murdoch wanted to shut out Google from indexing news content from his news networks and to establish paywalls for readers, it seems sites like Twitter could be faster on the trigger.
The golf superstar was released from a Florida hospital following the car accident early Friday.
"Tiger Woods was in a minor car accident outside his home last night. He was admitted, treated and released today in good condition," said a statement from Woods' office and the Florida Health Central Hospital posted on the golfer's website.
Media reports, citing the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), said Woods crashed into a fire hydrant and then drove into a tree after leaving his property in the Isleworth community in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando.
