Crisis management: Boston shows benefits, challenges of social media
from By Liz Murphy
It's becoming more apparent that Twitter and other new media channels such as Facebook are no longer just for personal users sharing what they're eating for dinner or their relationship status.

The chatter, however, can be overwhelming — sometimes even hindering law enforcement investigations with the sheer volume of information and factual inaccuracy.
