The United States, if not the world, was rocked this past week when the Boston Marathon was bombed. The past week has consisted of a nationwide manhunt to catch the suspects, who were successfully apprehended within the week. When I say nationwide, I mean nationwide. Social media sites, like Reddit and Twitter, became a source for information for many people, sometimes before traditional news stations would release official reports.
While this eventually would help in the catching of the culprits, there were a few interesting hiccups and facts caused by people’s reliance on social media that were reported on CBSnews.com that I think you should watch:
Our thoughts and prayers are still with everyone affected by this horrific attack not just on the Boston Marathon, but on our country. God bless Boston, and God bless America.
