Forget the rioters. This is the real London.

Londoners strike back with ‘Operation Riot Clean-up’

Brooms raised defiantly in the air, Londoners began cleaning up their city Tuesday after a third night of riots, with a Twitter and Facebook campaign rallying people to the most damaged areas.

The online-driven clean-up campaign is partly a riposte to the way that social networking sites and BlackBerry messaging services have been used by rioters to organise the violence in London… The account had 70,223 followers on Twitter by mid-afternoon on Tuesday, as it instructed people to congregate to remove the glass and bricks strewn across the streets of the city.

“I was devastated when I saw what happened last night. I was really angry so I thought I’d channel my anger in a constructive way,” said one woman in her 20s.
