Twitter Helps In Amber Alert
An Amber Alert was issued yesterday when a 1-year-old girl named Jaylin Boudria was kidnapped in Swansea, MA. Quickly the twitter community went to work tweeting about the Alert. I first heard about it when one of the people who I follow-on twitter tweeted about it, Patrick O’Malley (617patrick). I, along with many others quickly re-tweeted the message to our twitter followers (which isn’t all that many in my case, but millions in the case of some others). At around 5 o’clock came news that the little girl was found safe in Connecticut! I was so glad to hear that this story had a happy ending.
