Abstract

The recent riots in London and other cities in England have inspired a great deal of interest in the role of social media in incitement, organization and analysis of events. Initial reactions to the events saw many commentators laying blame upon social networks such as Twitter, suggesting that networks are being used to incite social unrest and that their absence would reduce the likelihood of ongoing unrest.
