When the camera panned over the crowd there was an analog version of Twitter where fans could tweet their messages to the hashtag #humantwitter and a group of human updaters in the audience would write out and hold up the the Tweet. Photographers also took shots of all the messages and then be retweeted to their original senders. As every news station out there jumps into having their own Twitter feed and ask views to Tweet their reactions this was an interesting twist on the concept.
