Folk seemed to like it last week when the hashtags focused on a special topic, so I am trying that again this week. Today, I’ve collected tweets on crises, disasters, emerging public health issues, and related time-dependent types of topics. Twitter is and has always been exceptional at the “current events” type of information and news, and is a remarkable source for discovering important topics that have yet to hit the mainstream media.
