Social media and an African chief

I read a story this morning that absolutely made me smile.

An African chief has taken to Twitter as a way to keep the peace in his community.
Chief Francis Kariuki of Kenya — or, @Chiefkariuki, as he's known online — tweets to defeat thugs and thieves, locate missing children and farm animals, and organize village logistical matters, according to the Associated Press. He tweets both in English and Swahili.

That's one great news story out of Africa this morning!
