Santiago de Compostela tweet tracking

Seeing a very high number of tweets coming from Santiago de Compostela, near the site of a major train accident in Spain.  This story shows the power of networking on Twitter.  On July 25 2013 I was seeing about 200 geo-tagged tweets an hour coming from the town, 80% of these were retweets of tweets by people near the accident.  On twitter first hand observations were getting copied over and over again.
