Reporting of the riots in London at the weekend used Twitter, live blogs and other social media to keep up with and add details to the quickly unfolding story.
The Guardian has a live blog on the riots and its award winning reporter Paul Lewis used his Twitter account @PaulLewis to not only report the story but try and get claims of incidents verified.
Local paper the Enfield Independent ran a live blog and news reports as the rioting spread from Tottenham to Enfield.
Storyful combined tweets, pictures, maps and YouTube video to report the rioting.
Kevin Anderson @kevglobal has posted on the Tottenham riots that digital journalists and social scientists should join forces. He writes on his blog Strange Attractor: "With the current interest in data journalism, this would be a great time to revisit one of the seminal moments of data journalism carried out by Philip Meyer in the wake of the 1967 riots in Detroit."
He says: "I´m sure that we´ll see hours of speculation on television and acres of newsprint positing theories. The Detroit riots showed that a partnership amongst social scientists, foundations, the local community and journalists can prove or disprove these theories and hopefully provide solutions rather than recriminations."
This is a tiny sample of the type of material that was available online for a story that broke awkwardly for Sunday newspaper deadlines. The only Sunday paper that splashed it on the front page and was available in my newsagent in North London was the Mail on Sunday.
The Express claims today that Twitter is being used to organise rioting across the country.
