Earlier today in the greater Los Angeles area, the earth shook. People were in panic, phone calls were made, and some G4 employees ran under their desk pulling out their iPhone....to play Super Monkey Ball.

However, in the midst of a 5.4 magnitude earthquake, a woman by the name of Verdell Wilson acted immediately during her gynecologist exam in the LA office - she twittered.

"As soon as I got dressed, I twittered my experience from my cell phone," Wilson said. Due to the abundance of calls during emergencies, CNET reported that twittering or texting may be the best way to communicate. AT&T spokesman John Britton said that the "texting network" won't be as congested as getting a phone call through.

So next time during an emergency, remember, texts are faster than voices....
