A View from Brian Bergstein
If You Read One TR Story This Weekend …
… We suggest this one: our second take on the role of the Web and social media in the revolutions in the Middle East.
Last year we sent a talented and perceptive writer, John Pollock, to Egypt and Tunisia to investigate the role social media really played in the beginning of the Arab Spring. Today we publish John’s follow-up on the subject: an inside look at how civilians in Libya used the Internet to their advantage in the revolution that ousted Qaddafi. It’s from our May/June issue, which will be out in its entirety next week.
