Moldovan Who Aided “Twitter Revolution” Charged

An activist in Moldova has been charged with inciting a “Twitter Revolution,” which has helped aid protests in the country over the last few days. Natalia Morar helped organize a flash mob to protest the elections on April 5th in which the Communist party won 50% of the vote, but many feel the results were manipulated, Wired. Protesters are using the tag #pman on Twitter to help organize protests. Take a look inside the Twitter Revolution, Wired.
