What if Twitter existed in 1992?
How would social media help tell the story of Rodney King and the Los Angeles Riots?
As part of NBC4's 20th anniversary coverage, we've created a Twitter account to remember the Los Angeles Riots in real time.
Local news from across Southern California
Currently, the account is chronicling the end of the trial of four police officers accused of beating Rodney King. On April 29 at 3:15 p.m., the verdict will be announced and the account will shift focus to the riots, complete with archive footage, photos and breaking news from around Los Angeles.
