Interesting story out of Bulgaria.. where people needing information in an earthquake situation once again turn to social media to find out the information they couldn’t get from official channels. From AFP:
Keep calm and tweet: Bulgarians turn to blogs for quake info
SOFIA — Twitter’s ubiquitous “Keep calm and tweet on” poster caption acquired new meaning for quake-hit Bulgarians Tuesday.
Lack of any official information on traditional media for about an hour after a 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Sofia early Tuesday prompted people to flock to microblogs and social networks, searching for information but also reassurance.
