Rehabilitation via social media?

Twitter has become a top social media platform and now it is being used to help the inmates of a Puerto Rican prison.

“The tweeters are part of a pilot program called Follow Me So You Don’t Follow Me, or Siguenos para que no nos sigas in Spanish. According to Fox News Latino, the trio shares three daily updates in Spanish, revealing the harshness of life in jail in the southern Puerto Rico town of Guayama. Each tweet is signed by either Inmate 1, 2 or 3.”

Here are a few examples of one of their tweets.

“This is not a reality show that enhances the life of crime, but the harsh reality of making a wrong decision,” said  Jesús González Cruz, secretary of the department of corrections and rehabilitation.”

Merely Sociality or perhaps a succesful tool for rehabilitation?
