Justice and Democracy In Social Media – KONY

Justice and Democracy In Social Media – KONY

, my country of origin, was victim of a military coup. As I was completely oblivious of the situation because so busy with work, I was alerted by my brother-in-law, an avid Twitter user. He knew in real time what was going even before most traditional media outlet such as CNN or The Washington Post had spread the news. The following weeks, I was glued to my Twitter account (@UniverSahel) and I was flooded with information about the progress in Mali. Two days ago, under international and regional pressure, the junta reinstituted the constitution and the President of the National Assembly assumed the interim. Democracy was saved thanks to social media and the thousands of “social reporters” who fed us with critical information. I now hope and pray that Kony and all other warlords will be also brought to justice thanks to social media.
