Tweets lead to fight and suspensions at Kamloops high school


Kamloops RCMP are investigating a fight and what appears to be an act of bullying at Valleyview Secondary School.

At least five students have been suspended by school administrators.

A fight at a high school certainly is nothing new, but the public way this one started is.

It began on Twitter.

For those not familiar with Twitter, it's a form of social media that allows users to send short messages using a smartphone or computer. 

The messages are called tweets, and they are available for anyone, anywhere to see.

Josh Pagé has the story, and joins Daybreak host Shelley Joyce.
