I have to admit I am very new to Twitter so still learning the ropes.
I feel it will be fun for anyone today to follow Orange Prize on Twitter and the #orangeprize hashtag, which is bound to contain very up-to-the-minute responses to the breaking news.
Who knows some people may do live tweets from the ceremony.
Edit (10:30): Right just received this tweet from @orangeprize:
"We'll be tweeting from the awards. Don't forget to include @orangeprize to feature on our twitter wall & wish the authors good luck!"
I'll certainly be tuning in and anyone new to the Twitterverse (or tempted to jump in) might find it a fun experience. Lots of authors do have Twitter accounts.
You can also follow on the Orange Prize Site as they have their Facebook and Twitter feeds listed on the home page.
