In this edition of From Our Perspective, the staff discusses the 14 year-old girl who tweeted a bomb threat to American Airlines and got arrested. Afterwards, she bragged about receiving thousands of new followers, prompting several other people to try the same stunt.
We argue about this generations lust for attention and what that means for everyone else. We also discuss whether being edgy is the key to gaining Twitter followers, and why things go viral.
