During theNational Farm Machinery Show and National Championship Tractor Pulls
, Farm Journal used social media to provide media coverage of the event. One thing that Margy Fischer and I enjoyed was posting pictures to Twitter with our cell phones. Super quick and easy, we were able to give you a feel of what was going on at the show in real time and at the click of a button. We are going to go back through the TwitPic Timeline for a quick overview of the show!

How do you use Twitter on your farms? Could you start uploading pictures with your cell phone so that others could see what was going on in your part of the country? Would you use your cell phone to send pictures for crop comments if that was an option?
