I think we all found out last night, that the fastest way to spread any news story is to get on the Internet. Even before it was confirmed, the reports from television stations about Mindy McCready’s “apparent” suicide were filling everyone’s Twitter. Just as quickly they spread to facebook. By the time the death was confirmed – we all knew that it was a possibility.
Then the Tweets started to change. Everyone was lifting the McCready family up in prayer, they were remembering their favorite Mindy McCready song, they were sharing whatever thoughts they had of the singer who some on Twitter started referring to as Angel No. 10,001.
Like many, I have always been a fan of Mindy – through her good times, and her bad. I wanted to share a few of the ‘Tweets’ that were going out last night.
