One intriguing aspect of the current Gaza crisis is the way that the Israel Defense Forces are using social media to communicate on twitter, facebook, a blog and, not least, youtube. Whatever you think of what they’re doing (which is, perhaps, another post) they certainly know how to get their argument across in an engaging and accessible way.
Again, I’m not asking you to agree with them. But that is impressive use of social media. Their twitter stream is very well thought-through too.
