From a single hashtag, a protest circled the world

• Reuters

It all started innocuously enough with a July 13 blog post urging people to #OccupyWallStreet, as though such a thing (Twitter hashtag and all) were possible.

It turns out, with enough momentum and a keen sense of how to use social media, it actually is.

    "Use" is, in this case, "abuse".

     Social media my a--! What a crock! If these people would spend even half the effort confronting the problem - the government(s) - instead of grinding on the very few folks who broke the laws, ignored basic morality, enriched themselves at the expense of those who had hoped to get something for nothing, and got away with it, because of GOVERNMENT COLLUSION and the most BASIC MALFEASANCE, they'd probably have a few more supporters and could identify a message or cause.

    KEEN SENSE? Give me a break! The who mob couldn't find their collective asses with both hands.
