Mapping #Balcombe tweets
Thought this is not heavy tweeting, its a lot of geo-tagged tweets to be coming from a field and it shows the ability of mobile twitter to establish communication and publishing infrastructure anywhere within 3G or 4G range. This gives any protest anywhere in the developed and much of the developing world access to a global stage at the push of a button.
Interesting to compare this to the actual town, which is getting much letter twitter activity. Essentially via twitter a community has turned a farm field and road in to a comms hub.
