" Californians Are Taking To Twitter To Shame Neighbors Who Waste Water" When water becomes a precious commodity in California, things get ugly. Californians are taking to social media to call out neighbors and businesses that are wasting water amid the state's extreme drought.As ABC News reports, disgruntled Californians are snapping photos of the offending lawns, sidewalks, golf courses and baseball fields and uploading them to social media accounts, using the hashtag #DroughtShaming.
Along with using Twitter to call out neighbors, California residents can also use an app
to document water-wasters near them. The app, which was designed in April to allow users to report things like lost pets in their neighborhoods, added the option to report drought offenders after they saw that the #DroughtShaming campaign had taken off.http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/07/30/3465637/california-drought-shaming/
