African Chief Uses Twitter To Fight Crime & Help Villagers
How social media is helping remote areas to connect and communicate.
Chief Francis Kariuki, an African administrative, started his Twitter account in June 2011 to help his Kenyan village maintain peace and order. His tweets have helped to fight crime, organize logistic matters, and locate missing children and farm animals. In one example, Kariuki used Twitter to organize a rescue operation to save a man who fell into a pit. In another, Kariuki was able to stop a bunch of criminals raiding a school teacher’s home through a tweet.
