Breaking Tweets: Twitter Tweets Informing Human Rights News
Here’s a fun site that illustrates how twitter tweets can make informative news pieces related to human rights. Breaking Tweets, in its own words produces “world news, Twitter-style” by creating journalistic news articles based on first-person information posted on Twitter. Tweets are pulled together into coherent stories; these stories, along with links to the tweets that inform them, are archived at the website. Many of the news items produced by Breaking Tweets focus on issues directly related to human rights, social justice, or environmental justice. The site also allows you to view stories by region, grouping them by major geographic areas: Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, Mideast, and Oceania.
