Twitter Predicts Riots If Zimmerman/Martin Case Goes Wrong Way

Twitter Predicts Riots If Zimmerman/Martin Case Goes Wrong Way:
Earlier this morning, it was announced that a Grand Jury would not be called in the divisive George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case. With that announcement, some on Twitter predicted riots would ensue if Zimmerman is not charged or convicted in the death of Martin. These are just a few samples:















One of the things Twitter has been touted for being able to do is give people a real-time sense of what’s on people’s minds. The things they’re talking about, the shows they’re watching, the food they’re eating. In this case, hopefully someone is watching, and will be anticipating that it looks like people will want to burn it all down if the outcome of Zimmerman/Martin is not the one they sought.
Good luck to us all, if that’s the case.
