Boston PD asks Marathon crowd to turn off cellphones to prevent accidental detonations
Once again, it was mobile social networks that played an important role in spreading the word of this tragedy. First reports that an explosion had taken place at the Boston Marathon came from tweets sent out by eyewitnesses. Pictures on Instagram showed runners crossing the finish line before the terrible explosions were heard. And of course, cellphones were able to bring the story right to your local television by those snapping pictures with their handset or using them to be interviewed by the media.
