Great things about being blind. Election results.

We had a provincial election here yesterday. I mentioned before about voting independently for the first time. Last night, when the results started rolling in, I followed them on twitter. I wasn't convinced I would like twitter at first. I like to write and resented that I had to fit my words into 140 characters. but I like it now. I use tweetlist ap on my ipod touch and it is very accessible. Before, when watching election results, often they would scroll along the tv screen. I couldn't follow as well as I would like to in the moment. I had to wait for the tv announcer to say the results whenever they felt like doing so. Last night, up to the minute results came through on the twitter feed and I was informed as things happened. Yay accessibility.
