Occupy Wall Street turns online for basics

From pizzas to medical supplies, the Occupy Wall Street movement turns to social media for real-world needs.

The Occupy Wall Street movement first gained international attention two weeks ago as an example of online actions manifested on the ground.

Now protesters in New York’s Zuccotti Park are turning to social-media tools such as Twitter and Facebook for everything from pizzas to medical supplies where donations are creating a thriving community.
