Twitter has come under a great deal of criticism for its role in mobilising riots across London, which started in Tottenham, but spread to Enfield, Walthamstow, Waltham Forest, and Brixton over the weekend. The Daily Mail was particularly quick to blame Twitter for helping to orchestrate the rioting and for spreading triumphal images from the rioters themselves. One picture of a burning police car was retweeted over 100 times and the Mail reported that the ‘troublemakers’ on Twitter were encouraging ‘scores more people into the area'. The Daily Telegraph similarly explained that Twitter and mobile internet access had helped teenage gang members to "incite and film the looting and violence". Like the press, the Metropolitan Police have also been quick to take issue with Twitter and other social media.

Great, so the people in the middle east have every right to organise protests but not OK for the young people in the UK, who don't really have a future thanks to massive cuts and taxes, to protest or riot or whatever. Not saying rioting is right, but you gotta see outside the fence too sometimes. As far as I know, we ARE NOT being told the full story by the mainstream media - they do have a proven track record for things like that.
