How would have Twitter and Facebook screwed up the information we got during 9/11?
I had never thought of that before. By the way we talked about it in class, it seemed like the other students in my class hadn’t either. This got me thinking about other events. Columbine. Oklahoma City Bombings. Heck even the bombing during the Atlanta Summer Olympics.
I support new media and use it frequently, but the more it is used for news purposes the more it turns me off to it. I am sure that the information we received during September 11 would have been cluttered and confusing, leaving millions worried for their safety.
What do you think?
