Follow the digital transition on Twitter

twitter_logo_125x29While President Barack Obama has extended the mandatory digital conversion date to June 12, many TV stations have made the switch or will make it at midnight, Feb. 17.

You can talk about and follow the switch on Twitter, using two hashtags: #dtv, #dtvtransition. A recent tweet points out the FCC has provided a DTV reception map that enables viewers to check the digital signal strength at their address.

The folks at Poynter.org are asking for stories on how things are going in your community. What’s working? What problems are you seeing? Who’s doing something innovative to help the “DTV orphans” in your area? What stories in local media and blogs are telling the tale?
