So as some of you may have heard, breaking story out of Anne Arundel county is about a Aurora “copy-cat” who was planning on killing people in his office after news that he was going to be fired. He referred to himself as “the joker” and wore a t-shirt that said, “Guns don’t kill people. I do.”

I was watching the live stream of the press conference about the arrest and my ears perked up when they said, “for the most up-to-date information, please follow our Twitter handle. That is where all the newest information will be posted the fastest.”

I found this really interesting after our discussion on crisis communication on Wednesday. Here is an example of a city office using Twitter in real time to keep people updated quickly on what is happening in the case.

A copy of the video has yet to be posted, but I will add it when it is!
