drone 765

The US continues its practice of using tactical drones to take out targets in foreign countries, but there are those out there trying to highlight the issue the best way they can. Teju Cole, writer and art historian, is one such person, using Twitter to succinctly post short stories about such drones. Gawker has rounded up all seven, with each confined to its own tweet while serving to underline the gravity of the situation. The writer closes by pointing readers towards more information about drone strikes, detailing who uses them as well as how they're used. The collection goes to show just how compelling Twitter can be when used in such an effective manner.
