Twitter Timeline (Archive)

Update 01/12/09: As you may have noticed this page among other is on a bit of a hiatus. Because of a vacation and also the fact that politics in Madagascar have pretty much stagnated, there really isn’t anything being mentioned in Twitter let alone breaking news reports. So, if there are any breaking developments I will once again follow the Twitter feeds and breaking news to try and consolidate everything that is occurring within the country.

I am currently working on updating this page and have also renamed it to reflect what it really is, which is a distillation of information that has gone through Twitter. As you may know, some of the information from Twitter can be a rumour or speculation, so you can take some of them with a grain of salt. For the most part though, I have found it and the many hard working people that Twitter to be a very valuable source of information in real time.

My goal for this page is just to capture some of the more important “Tweets” and their time so that I can have a Crisis Timeline that is comparable to my other page which is a consolidation of information from TopMada/Sobika and news sources. Might prove to be interesting
