Yesterday morning, Americas Quarterly published my article “Twitter saves lives in Mexico”. Apparently the story hit home to a lot of people because it has since gone viral being republished and shared on social networks and the internet at a massive scale (at least I think so anyways).
I’m glad so many people have found this story interesting. Here is part of the aftershock:
- Within a couple of hours, the piece had gone to #1 Most popular on AQ Online.
- NBC San Antonio is going to run a report on it sometime next week.
- The story was referenced by Hispanic Tips – Hispanic and Latino News Redefined.
- NotiSensor translated it into Spanish and republished it here.
- Pakistan Voices discussed and linked the story here.
- Global Voices promoted the article via Twitter and their website here.
- Silobreaker.com talked about the article here.
- BuzzBox caught the story and linked it through its Twitter account and via its website.
- BuzzTracker also found its way to it and promoted it here.
- Twitter users have retweeted the story with impacts over 200,000 just on the first day.
The most important thing to remember: the story is only possible due to the fact that we have people behind user accounts like @TrackMty, @SPSeguro and @MAGS_SP helping others be safe. Once again, thanks to them.
