Mr. Stevenson's assignment

For current uprisings:

This is in progress, but here are a few things to get you started today.
Use # hashtag to search Twitter. Click on image below to see how it works.
Translation tool for above (you can enter a URL and it will translate the whole site
To use Twitter for this project, I recommend a few things:
1. Open a TweetDeck or HootSuite account to manage your streams
2. Click on links! You can't base your research on 140 character messages.
3. To find links to Facebook pages about unrest, keep an eye out for URLs that include fb like BEWARE! This is the real world and there may be inappropriate content including violent images. Be responsible. Use Babelfish to translate.

For the following uprisings:

Easter Island, Pitcairn/Henderson/Mangareva, Anasazi, Maya, Iceland, Greenland Norse/Inuit, New Guinea, Tikopia, Tokugawa Japan, Rwanda, Dominican Republic/Haiti, China, Australia
Indus Valley, Alexander the Great/generals, Eastern (Byzantine)/Western Roman Empire, Olmec/Maya/Aztec/Inca.
