For those who don't subscribe to Major Garrett's tweets - the Fox News Senior White House Correspondent was able to message his loyal tweeps the latest news from the statements made by Chinese President Hu and President Obama in real time, while he sat in the audience in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.  Why is that so special? As my colleague Kelly Chernenkoff noted in her blog yesterday, access to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook have been blocked in China.  That access does not appear to restrict messages to those sites from people's mobile devices.

President Obama told students at a Shanghai Town yesterday that although he's never used twitter, he's a big believer in technology and the free flow of information that it enables, "I think that the more freely information flows, the stronger the society becomes, because then citizens of countries around the world can hold their own governments accountable."
