Occupy Wall Street: The Year’s Most Memorable Videos
A year ago, Tim Pool traveled to New York to see the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations for himself. On a whim, he came from Virginia with only a smartphone and a battery pack. Pool, who worked as a community outreach director at a non-profit, then began live-streaming the protests and clashes with NYPD.
Pool quickly gained followers to his channels on Ustream and Twitter where he reported on what was happening at the time in Zuccatti Park. He became a source of information for the outside world by covering what was happening as it happened and soon received the title “citizen journalist” — though that’s not exactly what he’d call himself.
