Within mere moments of the incident, Twitter updates -- replete with images from the scene -- began popping up all over.
One of the most immediately compelling was submitted by Twitter-user @jkrums, who snapped this photo of the passengers awaiting rescue after the crash.
Shortly after this image was posted, the man responsible was interviewed live on MSNBC.
Talk about a quick turnaround.
