Twitter is great for a lot of things -- breaking news, communicating with fans and staying in touch on a variety of topics. It also opens our eyes to the number of people who are stunned -- stunned! -- to learn that Kansas City is in fact in Missouri.

Yes, there is a Kansas City, Kansas. And, yes, the name Kansas City sure sounds like it's in Kansas. But, no, the Kansas City everyone refers to is not in Kansas. It's in Missouri, where last night's homerun derby took place.

During the Homerun Derby last night I collected a bunch of tweets from people who confused Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas.
