Why Do We Endlessly Retweet Tragedy?

Fear On TwitterWith the utmost respect for victims and survivors, may I question why we feel so compelled to personally spread bad news? Why with each bombing or disaster we all race to tell everyone we know what happened? We've realized the power of social media for distributing real-time news. It lets us express empathy, but can also spread fear and misinformation. It's time to ask if and when we're helping.
