Protesters are using Twitter.com to post news and notifications and call for help and backup from other protesters. The web address on Twitter is twitter.com/rnc08 and shows notifications, such as requests for money for bail for people with felony charges, and status updates about how many police officers are located at specific addresses, and alerts notifying protesters about police movement. The website also gives arrest update locations, such as “5th & Sibley two confirmed arrests – female indy reporter, male with her down on the ground tasered; crowd chanting let them go.” The twitter site lists their official site as the RNC Welcoming Committee (nornc.org)
