Guardian data shows Twitter didn't cause riots

Following on from my recent post, the Guardian has produced a rather useful interactive graph illustrating data of Tweets relating to the riots.

It is no surprise that early indications are that most Tweets were reactive and not pre-planning the next move of the rioters.

Hopefully this will inform Theresa May ahead of her meeting with key social networks and help prevent headline grabbing but ill thought out plans to shut down social networks during times of 'civil unrest'.
