“A revolution in 140 characters” – Pragati article

In  the article “A revolution in 140 characters” over at Pragati‘s March edition, I cover the use of social media like Twitter and Facebook in the recent revolutions sweeping parts of the world.

Egypt has disposed of its dictator, soon after Tunisia handed out similar treatment to its own. The dizzying pace of these developments left many too shocked to comment, even as journalists scrambled to follow and write up the latest news.

A question that is making the rounds is, “Why now?” A part of the answer seems to be — to the surprise of many—social media.
