Bridget Coyne, a senior manager at Twitter, points to several features the company has added to those 140 character tweets: polls, photos, video, Moments and more.

One survey found that eight in 10 drivers talk on their phones while behind the wheel. LaHood is counting on frightening numbers cellphone use is a factor in an estimated 342,000 auto accident injuries and costs $43 billion each year in property damage, lost wages, medical bills and loss of life to help win support..
