Just really interesting how celebrated Twitter and social media were praised during the Egypt and Tunisia revolutions and how now they’re the scapegoat in the London riots and the Chicago “flash robs” a few months ago. I also heard that BlackBerry’s BBM is being blamed – What the heck London? Who uses that? I guess it’s more private that Twitter. Whatevs.
I wonder if there’s going to be a proliferation in police use of the social media to counteract it. I mean, if the police knew what they were doing they would be able to stay just as on top of the mess as the other side, right?
