No one knows what the future may bring, however we can tweet about our thoughts. Twitter has been populating the Cronkite School like a wildfire. Twitter has opened business opportunities for many and and recently reunited Austin Horse and his orange bicycle.
Years ago, if a bicycle was stolen you would most likely not see it again. But, in this day in age, thanks to the Internet and the Twitter website, Horse was able to find the bicycle snatcher.
Horse, went into the store and did not lock his bike up entirely, however he said he kept a close eye on it. Clearly, not well enough. Naturally, Horse posted pictures around the area, but he also took it a step further. Horse immediately tweeted, “my orange gangsta just got stolen 28th & mad.” In a a giant (New York) city, Horse feared his bicycle would never be found. However, thanks to one of the newest social media tools, “the orange gangster” was back to his rightful owner.
Horse’s friend and twitter follow, Eddie Brannan, was walking to a deli near Stanton Street with his wife, when he recognized the orange bike parked. Brannan contacted Horse and the rest is Twitter history.
