Twitter is the new USSR

Guardian:

Just as Tottenham residents in 1985 lambasted the media for scaremongering about protesters – the Daily Express suggested some had been trained in Russia – today’s rioters might be surprised to read about “Twitter-organised chaos”.

I love the idea of twitter as the new Soviet influence behind every event. It’s not quite a perfect stand-in, but it comes close.
