If you're on Twitter, you may have seen some of the great tweets from @Amver like:
-> Nigerian rebels kidnap 6 crewmembers from chemical carrier Sichem Peace
-> Boating tips for watching fireworks from boats
-> U.S. House passes piracy amendment; military guards to man certain ships/cargoes
-> Iranian naval ship stops pirate attack in the Gulf of Aden
-> French rescue authorities request @amver assistance for missing plane near Comoros Islands
Intrigued by the intensity of these tweets, I contacted Benjamin Strong to learn more about Amver. I encourage you to read all of his responses. If you think his tweets are intriguing, you'll really appreciate his thoughts about the Coast Guard and social media!
