Bloggers ‘Blitzoid’ Over Occupy Nashville Arrests

Blogger watcher Micheal Silence on Internet observations of Occupy Nashville:
There’s an old adage: “Don’t swat a hornet’s nest.”
That’s what the state of Tennessee did when it told a group of Occupy Nashville participants to get off public property, in this case the Legislative Plaza. Apparently, state officials thought the saying was “swat a hornet’s nest.”
The Tennessee blogosphere went blitzoid. As of this writing, there were more 5,400 people following @occupynashville on Twitter. From Mountain City to Memphis people sounded off on the controversy.
