I posted on dot life on Tuesday about the way people are using social media to cover the G20 – protestors, government and a sort of in between bunch of people who are taking part in government sponsored blogging, debating, and other web activity.
On Wednesday I spent some of the day trying to see what was going on at the demos in the City via Twitter, Flickr, AudioBoo etc. Concluded that TV was actually providing a fuller picture than what we in the MSM call UGC.
But on Thursday morning I’m getting calls claiming Twitter was used to organise the demos. Seems unlikely to me – for two reasons. First, it’s an over-35 kind of place, second it’s too public for “covert” activity. But maybe I’m wrong. Let me know if you’ve evidence that Twitter was a really useful organisational tool for G20 protestors.
