NowPublic partners with AP

The news just keeps getting better. Today the Associated Press (AP) and NowPublic announced that they have agreed to a deal that will bring NowPublic's citizen content into AP's news gathering network. According to the press release, the two companies will work together to explore ways of involving NowPublic's on-the-ground network of news contributors with AP's breaking news coverage – increasing the worlds access to news as it happens.

To put this into perspective, on any given day, more than half the world's population sees news from AP – so this is an unparalleled distribution opportunity for citizen created content and contributors to NowPublic. And of course, as NowPublic is built on Drupal, it's good news for Drupal too.

Great news! Btw if you're an advisor for NowPublic (a great site), could you... advise them that cutting title of news on the front page is a big no-no?

Those aren't that bad, but sometimes you cant even tell what the news is about. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of big titles. Lower the font size automatically when the string is too long maybe?
