  • ¡Esta revolución será tuiteada!

    A wise man once said that The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

    Gil Scott-Heron was correct.

    The revolution is being tweeted.

    Here’s the outline of this story: Shortly before committing suicide, a lawyer in Guatemala made a Youtube video explaining that he was about to be assassinated by the government. So maybe not suicide, eh? Subsequently, a guy sent out a tweet on Twitter about it, and was arrested and put in jail. Now the whole nation is in demonstration against the government, using social networks to organize.

    It is a beautiful thing to behold.

    Did you see it on TV?
