Oxfam team tweets updates from the Philippines

Posted by

No matter what you think of Twitter, you have to admit that it’s become an important way to report on what’s happening in the world. For many of us, tweets—a widely accessible, simple, personal, and instantaneous means of communication—have provided a real-time window into everything from revolutions to natural disasters.

And Typhoon Haiyan is no exception. As Oxfam races to bring much-needed emergency assistance to thousands affected by the storm, our team members on the ground are turning to Twitter to share their photos and updates from the response. Read a sampling of their recent tweets below, and be sure to follow us at @oxfamamerica for more updates.
