Twitter’s Role in the Announcement of Osama’s Death

Attached is a video of Andrew Smith discussing the Role of Twitter in the Announcement of Osama Bin Ladens death. He describes the ability of social media to create a collective space for people to react to such big events. He also touches on the fact that young demographics get a lot of their news from social media outlets.

I am very interested in the social media phenomenon. And as I posted before, I think it is a great great asset when used for positive purposes.
