With Twitter as your tour guide, hitting L.A.'s hot spots is a breeze

But Twitter did introduce me to short-rib tacos. And it didn't keep me from an engrossing, cross-country conversation — touched off by a question about iPhone apps — with my Alaska Airlines seatmates Axel Woolfolk and Rick Reyes.

Woolfolk, spokesman for an Internet-based documentary film company called Brave New Films, was returning home to L.A. with Reyes, an Iraq and Afghanistan Marine veteran who'd just testified about the dangers of a stepped-up Afghanistan military operation at a Senate hearing chaired by Sen. John Kerry.

In true 21st-century style, the two had met through Facebook only a month or two earlier — after Reyes sent a message to Brave New Films' founder congratulating him on his work.
