JAPAN EARTHQUAKE & TSUNAMI
VOA’s Steve Herman has been reporting, tweeting, and photographing the ongoing disaster from Japan almost non-stop since he rushed to the scene from his home base in South Korea. Fluent in Japanese, Steve’s informative tweets have attracted attention from a host of other media. His followers (1,000+ daily) are responding and re-tweet many of his messages, which have sometimes come in at the rate of 20 an hour. Follow him on Twitter @W7VOA.
