Twitter dispatching “at” the RNC

Posted by: on Sep 6, 2008 | No Comments

Nancy Scola, who wrote yesterday about mobile media coordination of protests at RNC2008, has a follow-up interview with one fellow who acted as a dispatcher. The RNC took place in Minneapolis-St.Paul; the “dispatcher” worked from Tempe and had never been to the Twin Cities. Among the things he did: “appending the hash tag #RNC08 to untagged protest-related tweets so that they would pop-up on the C-SPAN RNC ’08 Convention Hub.”
