My lady was stuck at an airport during a snow storm on her way home last December with minimum information. I quickly turned to twitter to find out more; what I found was a picture of the plane she was supposed to be in, snowed in at the tarmac. She had been at the airport for over 8 hours by that point. I wanted information on how many planes where landing/taking off, etc. as the airport's flight status web page was not being updated.
Turns out, sometimes too much information is not necessarily a good thing when it comes to social media, you never know who might be watching.
Full screen caps from twitter at the bottom--her plane actually took off about 4 hours after the time mentioned below:
