The Shooting Incident at GSP

My friend on facebook posted this status on November 4: “WTH…there’s a shooting at GSP right now?!?” I immediately looked it up on google but nothing came up. I then went onto twitter and searched the hashtag, “GSP” and all these tweets came up. It’s amazing how I got information from twitter and not google. It demonstrates how powerful social media actually is. I was also watching the live coverage online. It’s amazing how I didn’t have to leave my laptop and I was finding out about all this stuff within seconds. Did anyone else find out about the shooting through social media (twitter, facebook etc?)

    I heard about the GSP shooting through twitter! It’s crazy how information spreads like wildfire on social media sites. I’m thankful yet apprihensive whenever I hear about incidents like these via social media simply because Im not sure if I can trust the validity of the source.
