Twittering on war crimes trials and genocide: it sounds like a tasteless joke, or an indictment of social media.
But USF's Dean Jeff Brand manages to pull it off in his updates from Cambodia, where he has visited the killing fields and is attending the war crimes trial of Kaing Guek Eav (aka Duch). The 140-character limit gives his tweets a haiku-like poignancy:
Killing Fields: Clouded sky. Beautiful trees pushed by a hot breeze. "Tainted beauty" says one student. "Overwhelming" says another.
