The Twitter Revolution - Literally

Yesterday, our man in Moldova, Joe Lowry, gave us a first hand perspective of revolution either side of Trans-Dnistria.

In a previous post last week we also broached the topic of social media and its growing importance (and pervasiveness) in all facets of life including humanitarian action.

I came across this article on Tech Crunch this morning which ties both subjects together. The article also contains samples of typical tweets in Moldova right now.

Very interesting but not in the least surprising. Crowd sourcing and micro blogging have proven themselves to be literally revolutionary!

I also notice that the Guaridian UK carries a report on this too and has already dubbed Moldova the Twitter Revolution.

Thanks to Raj Rana for drawing this to my attention.
