Life and death on Twitter

I like to use Storyful from time to time, because it can gather a lot of foreign affairs stories and can outline the main online trends of the day.

For today, I enjoyed reading about the fake Twitter account attributed to the Egyptian Ministry of Home affairs announcing the death of Hosni Mubarak. The news was spread further by Tommasso de Benetti whose aim is to expose the weaknesses of the media. And apparently he succeeded very well by now
