Battleground Twitter

As the unrest intensifies in middle east, the real war is happening in Social media.  We have seen the power of social media earlier, be it the Arab Springs or the India against corruption campaign. But then the recent war updates in middle east has taken this to a new level. You get live updates of war in the official twitter handles of  Al Qassam Brigades in Palestine and Official Israel Defense Forces.

Both the Twitter handles have sizable following and its been updated on a regular basis. Images and videos of the war is being shared.  Some tweets are so detailed to the extent where they share how many rockets were fired, the extent of damage done and the number of causalities. I think this is how the wars are going to be fought in future, where the actual battleground is going to be the Internet and Social networking sites.
