Using Social Media in Times of Disaster

Everyone (hopefully) by now has heard about the volcanic ash, unless you’re living under a rock, and how it’s disrupting flights overseas. I was perusing tweet deck today, when I happened to notice this awesome little tweet… this truly shows the power of social media.


The 99 Percent is actually a website that I swear by. You’ll just have to check it out to know its awesomeness. I was surprised to see this tweet out there, because it really was an ingenious idea that I thought was heartfelt. I know a lot of the airports haven’t been flying in and out, and what better way is there to find people when you’re stranded in the big city of NY?

So yeah. That’s all for today. If you aren’t following The99Percent on twitter, then I highly suggest you do.
