Decentralized Twitter sidesteps Central Control

The internet is decentralized.
No one controls it.

There is no centre.

Previously, with centralized media whoever controlled it could decisively shape public opinion.

All information has the potential to be propaganda. The key is not to give your opponent a chance to respond.

Communist state-run, centrally controlled media was a key platform in managing their masses.

Events in Moldova overnight, show the landscape has changed.
Decentralized Twitter has sidestepped Central Control.
After mobile phone networks went down and cable TV did too, protestors turned to Twitter.
Whilst free TV around the world showed the protests, State controlled TV in Moldova showed the opera.

In an update on flashmobs created by texting, we now have the twitmob.
Central Control everywhere, beware.

The next step in security systems is to control the network and social links

I have no doubts about it
