Twitter and iPhone help find lost skiier, but companion found dead

From CNET – In a bittersweet conclusion, a missing skiier in the Swiss Alps was rescued with the help of Twitter and an iPhone, but it appears that his fellow skiing companion was found deceased after the two were separated from the rest of their group.

Tracking Twitter search for the term “verbier” (the region of the Alps where the two went missing) has brought much of the news together.
