Twitterstorm in Denmark

Yesterday we had a storm in Denmark, and it was way stronger than we usually experience. This brought us Danes together, not only in the streets but also on Twitter. While I was safe inside, I could follow everything that was happening even before News organizations  would broadcast it. This can be a rather uncommon phenonenom to some Danes but rather normal to others. I’ve gathered a few informing, funny and helpful tweets in this Storify:

Twitterstorm in Denmark

I’ve tried to embed the Storify here but some how it doesn’t work. If you have a clue how to do it, please let me know in the comments below or via @Trine_Dalsgaard

To sum up my Storify on #stormdk. It is quite clear that Twitter did indeed  make a difference yesterday. Maybe a few more has seen the light, as @SjylPoliti says:

Translation: Thank you so much for the praise during this Twitter effort. And welcome to almost 1000 new followers :-)

Now new followers aren’t all but the tweets from several police departments, as seen in the Storify, shows that the information got out. And that’s the remarkable thing we can all cherish from this social media platform. It’s fast, and it’s precise with only 140 characters. It’s simply heartwarming to see strangers helping each other find shelter, or a ride from different cities. People across country got together and helped with eithr RT’s, or information to others.

So if anyone is still in doubt about Twitter, don’t be. It’s not a fluke in Denmark, and in a matter of time it will be unavoidable.

Translation: When the storm is over, it will show that the police and especially @SJylPoliti has proven. that Twitter is brilliant as a communication tool during a crisis.
