In Mangum, OK, there was a shooting during a domestic. The outcome was the shooter taking his own life.
We normally take these issues with a grain of salt. These are Big City events. They are not supposed to happen in Rural America ... on a Holiday ... on Twitter.
The Twitter got the news on Twitter, not conventional media. I even learned of this over twitter, since I was on the other side of the State.
In rural America, the use of Web 2.0 is coming around. In two zip codes, I have monitored some of the most touching expressions of life along with the threat to crime and violence. Twitter, along with being a tool for ground truth, especially in weather, can also be used as a monitoring tool, ex. gangs use Twitter to recruit so LEO can use Twitter to monitor.
