Inauguration day snapshot: A San Franciscan Twitters Obama's speech
SAN FRANCISCO -- First, the woman in an "Obama-Biden" T-shirt shouted "Evil! Evil!" when Dick Cheney was wheeled out on stage in advance of President Obama's inauguration.
Then she sent her daughter a text message from the crowded lawn at San Francisco City Hall, where she had joined hundreds of revelers this morning in front of a giant outdoor screen, watching as the first African American president was sworn in.
Finally, Nancy Frishberg Twittered the world.
"Congratulations America on a hope-inspiring new administration," the 60-year-old San Franciscan typed into her iPhone, with its sleek pink skin.
Frishberg paused. She scrolled. She pointed again, this time to Heather's brief, exultant posting about Obama's inaugural address: "He said digital! First 3 minutes!"
(The line she was referring to: "We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together." You can read the full text of Obama's speech at The Top of the Ticket blog.)
