The U.S. Geological Survey actually uses info from social media (Twitter, particularly) to gather earthquake data. They remark, "The info gleaned from the Twitter posts is available almost instantly, whereas even the preliminary analyses the agency’s scientists use to pinpoint a quake’s origin and size often take 15 minutes or more."
