Boston Marathon Bombing Timeline Examines Social Media Responses Reply

Boston Bombing Victim actually Nick Vogt

A video of the Boston marathon timeline by Emily Tolan, a graduating senior at Savannah College of Art & Design was chosen as a Vimeo Staff Pick.  Tolan tracks the social media response of the public, press, government, and law enforcement to the Boston Marathon bombings.

The video offers a compelling timeline, complete with video clips and media updates through the first several days of the investigation and recovery. The video shows how the story was simultaneously being told on Twitter. There’s a well-edited segment 3:30 in, showing media confusion (and lots of bad reporting) on Wednesday, April 17, when several outlets incorrectly reported a suspect had been arrested  (Source)
