Twisting Twitter Towards Crime
Right when the Flash Mob gets passé, enter the Flash Rob:
A message goes out over Twitter and suddenly hordes of young people appear in a store and start stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise. Then, as quickly as they came, they disappear.

Or are people doing the math and realizing that with numbers on their side, free thrills and merchandise are too good to ignore?
