It was great -- old friends and brother Cyrus come -- yet. Obviously is that after on the could I -- understands that young Latvians make good choices I'd like to see any need. You arguably couldn't be any more famous than he was right during and president very specific Rick and -- and the -- break -- -- that idea that left them in to make the choice is making and beyond that's -- now -- and become a man and he literally all I -- not deliberately picked. And yet dogs on and we got -- board had dogs airports all of Wallace Monday and we have coming up. -- -- -- within the -- really Tory Johnson with a very special. We just were not we. We it's either a deal -- the steel. We're not -- off for a good cause that's the great thing and it it's our operating -- it's very -- cut the best the very -- cause of all and -- because we -- -- -- -- just acknowledge our fine fine fine. GM Iraq. -- -- You guys -- -- You don't tell all my day I can tell you I'm day when the news is like it's just -- news and you don't want to have to deliberate. And then so Josh night we're like let's go let's go outside let's go. You know you guys make I -- happy you guys aren't you are you got your heart. We want to welcome our friends from both ABC and NBC affiliate yeah thank you. I want to point of view -- that Nintendo. Has and they want the guilty now want to. We want it before it's Torre. We want to bring that's our good friend and different and not just because. Booking him has become very very -- in his but Andrew. You're always here discussing social media and what's resonating day to day but certainly. Over the last 72 hours we have seen at least how -- our world has changed how social media has impacted. Not just how we learn -- our news but then how really I think we all investigate and deal with. Absolutely in the -- things part of my job as Iverson the social. Social media desk during braking news they've been activated for the past. -- ours -- got a question for the experienced journalists in the room I don't now how you do it I mean I sent my I was I was -- -- in my pajamas. They came -- last night 1130 or -- there a and I sat on had dynamite das for thirty minutes and that's obviously I got but I can't imagine quicksand you being on the hurricane and being out there for the days. I have a tremendous amount of respect for you -- -- Turn it -- Garcia she -- here Jessica. -- this is I'm pretty sure anybody's who by the way the I don't do half as much work she does when we're on those that breaking -- -- just want to bring you went get a good picture Darcy but it. Is it is absolutely. True that -- stories break. And Joshua Justin -- both of you were in Newtown and Josh you just went into to Boston what happens is that we activate 24 hours a day it's. -- crash afterwards but you rally for the moment. And an -- -- many times it's not good news it's news that you don't want to be a part of telling Tom. And I think -- it's really it's it's tough I think. When we're interviewing people and storm damage in people -- families who have gone through it. A lot of people say well you're you're not being kind to those people because it's a terrible moment in their lives what we found is when we're out people come -- and -- The -- wanted to their story out there and really get yeah and they won't people who aren't they also are hoping for a lot of times collective health and just emotional -- like and I writing a very cathartic for people to say -- -- what happens. And we need help and it really does have a huge impact people rapidly people give people support and that's what makes these people and meets all of us get. Through these times and these are people who are touched instantly by tragedy and have their lives changed. -- -- -- I sat down with a mother in Boston who each -- the -- three sons two of them were at the blast area. And each lost a leg hand. Bob she -- because she wanted everybody to know. What good strong voice -- so when you've watched the interview and understandably. -- emotion bubbles up. Spills out of her and people are wondering. -- know why we are talking to her -- that moment. She wanted to talk as best as she could and that is you know we. We go to great pains to be as respectful as we can in these horrific times we'll do it again today in Texas. And we do want you to know also begin with social media Andrew. You know we saw yesterday. Our business has changed so much. In twenty years it when we got news from newspapers. A story can develop over a day before we would really know. When it happened in what was happening right now. And 140 -- -- -- -- is an instant and sell things changed and we just have to be. It is so much better to be right than first film that something good -- of. What hangs over my head and -- social media editor Sam on what town we sit up there. One tweet can destroy the -- absolutely it has any grounds organizations but take a look at this. Just in the past 24 hours -- 169000. -- with bravery of taxes. -- but get -- of the past week over eleven point seven million tweets. Have been sent mentioning just the word Boston but let's narrow it down even -- let's take a look at. Pray for fox and five point eight million tweets and -- that I love to get it's not just about getting news -- information out it's about giving each other. A feeling of warmth and support and an liked what virtual hugs over tweeting I'm absolutely absolutely and so many people this morning on Twitter responded to play of the day Josh including Robin.

All across the country especially Yankee Stadium the night after when -- -- sweet -- again.
