Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics. Ignoring facts like I'm certain if you look at the poverty level where the people in Chicago were killed it's probably fairly high. Also the part where the population is most likely >80% African American.

So they hold Twitter responsible, but not Skype (Microsoft), Yahoo, AOL, or any of the other companies that offer IM-type or bulletin board type services where information can be passed? Hell - with a little planning, a Wikipedia article edit could be used as a communication channel, not to mention the talk portion where editing an article is discussed.

And said C level executive will say (if you are lucky) "Here's X amount of dollars. Make it work, I want to be able to use device in meeting next Wednesday." I can guarantee you that X is going to be less than the amount needed to do it properly and a performance goal will be added to said IT guy's yearly review showing how well they made it work (or not work).
