to coup or not to coup? updates on twitter

As some of you might know, they are big protests in Thailand right now about the current government. Some of the Bangkok protests are violent, with police firing tear gas and flash grenades into the crowds. These seem to be confined to the area around Ratchadamnoen, where many government offices are (far from me).

Although, from my balcony, I just saw some yellow-shirted marchers go by holding banners, accompanied by military-sounding marching music. Not soldiers, however. Maybe it was just an advertizing thing for mouthwash or laundry detergent, they have those often too.

Most people, including me, are just going on with their lives at the moment, but if you want a unofficial, blow-by-blow, man-on-the-street account of what is happening here in the capital, you follow thaicoup on twitter.
