Another night of appalling rioting happened last night. But Blackberry, and in particular blackberry messaging, more than Twitter seems to be the the tool of the rioters: http://bit.ly/odv5Py
Help the authorities grab a hold of the situation. Use a special hashtag to turn the culprits in. Use #turnthemin with any evidence of rioters because #londonriots has way too much content for any police organisation to sift through.
Please retweet this and please use the #turnthemin hashtag.
Like many tools it can be used for bad but also for good. Let's demonstrate it's power to do good. Let's see if we can turn the headlines around.
Footnote: The police have just announced that they would like you to use #tweetalooter so please use that instead.
Do you know any of the culprits on these websites?
