Social Media: Blogs, Twitter and Mumbai Terror Attacks
Posted by Gautam
It’s been a tough 48 hours so far. 36 hours for me so far, as I only got to see the news on my mobile phone via twitter (and Facebook status messages)
Apparently I was not the only one.
The worldwide news establishment which was hungry for the news (presumably because of foreign hostages in Taj, Oberoi and Nariman Chabad house) and having no local presence in India and finally found Twitter posts on Mumbai and the blasts. They came to know of the initiatives like Mumbai help by Dina and others
Soon Twitter and Blogs became the next story after the hostages and terror attacks themselves.
Here are some I came across:
Reuters: Blogs Feed Information Frenzy
Sky News: Bloggers in Shock At Mumbai Terror
ZDNet: Knowledge is Power
ABC News: Social Media a Lifeline, Also Threat?
Telegraph UK: Mumbai Attacks: A defining moment for Citizen Journalism
Indiatimes: Twitter Arises from Mumbai Ashes
