Anti-social media

13 May 2013

 

Today’s El Debate  has a story on a “virtual” kidnapping… the victim received death threats against his family, UNLESS he made himself scarce.  The next day,  his relations started getting calls telling them they’d kidnapped the guy, and would only release him after a ransom payment.  So, the family turned to facebook and twitter to find the dude, which he was, sitting in a hotel room waiting by the phone for word he could go home.

I’m surprised only that the “virtual kidnappers” didn’t demand their ransom in bitcoins.
