Mumbai Rains Through Twitter

This year 2009, the Mumbai monsoons flooded Twitter. Being far away in Delhi, it was an amazing experience to get minute by minute update of the Mumbai rains. So, I collated my learning from the tweets.

Here are the top ten things I learnt from tweets on the Mumbai rains:

1. Water logging

2. Loads of muck

3. Traffic jam

4. Trains running very slow

5. Office goers on the road

6. Auto guys complain there's traffic (in Mumbai?!)

7. Some one gimme a lift on the way/ take me home

8. Disaster management cell nos. Does someone have it please?

9. Opportunist marketers bombarding

10. Congestion and detour

I would have loved to mention the names of all those who sent updates on Mumbai rains but that would occupy pages and pages so i am keeping it simple by saying: Thanks Tweeples!

You are right, Deepti. It's definitely changed the world and how we reach out across boundaries to grow, share and experience new things together.
