Tagboard.com: A New Ally In The Information War

A few days ago, I had heard that there were riots going on in Brooklyn.  I had no idea what was going on or why and didn’t feel like waiting for the evening news to tell me what was going on.  I knew that people were taking pictures on Instagram and tweeting under the hashtag #brooklynriot and #brooklynprotest, so I used a new website to get the big picture in one fell swoop.

Tagboard.com  is a hashtag aggregation website that searches all social media for the hashtag that you plug in.  In the case of the Brooklyn riot meme, I was able to see moment to moment what was occurring.

Of course, Tagboard was not created as a site to help protestors organize, but to keep the increasingly media savvy public well organized.  But one has to consider the power that a site like this can wield; across the board, from site to site, you have an eye in the sky.  It may very well be that one of the unintended boons of protest culture and public awareness has come by way of sites like this.  Look up your favorite hashtag to stay up to date at tagboard.com
and see what I mean.

    I think this is a nice aggregator
    but I find the need to login with FB or Twitter an invasion of non-privacy
    which is why for really stealth stuff
    I have other IDs

    don’t think for one minute that
    your selections of things of interest will not be dully noted
    by the bots that report back to the drones
