India’s SMS Hoax Panic: Could It Happen In The U.S.?
#SuryaRay #Surya Last week tens of thousands of migrants from India’s northeast region fled urban areas rumor ricocheted through text messages and social media that Muslims would attack them after Ramadan. Fake photos added to the rumors credibility. Given how forward button happy we can be in the U.S., I can’t help but wonder if a similar panic could happen here. I spoke with Shlok Vaidya, a former Department of Defense consultant turned entrepreneur in residence at the Tech Ranch Austin incubator, about how this happened in India and what it would take for something like that to happen here. http://dlvr.it/22tQVf @suryaray
