Missing Girl Tweet Goes Viral!
In our digital age, there are numerous reasons for anything to go viral, but what happens when a missing teen Tweets for help?
The use of social media can be powerful. A perfect illustration of this is when a New Jersey teen tweeted hours ago that someone was in her home.
“There is somone in my hour ecall 911,” it read.
The result was a massive increase in followers which currently stands at 88k and counting, numerous retweets, and a trending hash tag #HelpFindKara on Twitter. In addition, a Facebook page was created in an effort to help find her, titled “Help Find Kara Alongi”
Police are skeptical on whether the teens was actually abducted or just ran away. Although Kara is officially missing, there was no sign of forced entry at her home.
There hasn’t been any updates on her official Twitter handle @KaraAlongi. Moments after her 911 tweet, another (which was later deleted), stated that the teenage girl was joking. Police is asking for everyone to disregard that message as she is still missing.
