Protest in Trafalgar Square.

Ten years ago, this would have been the sort of announcement made on a megaphone during a protest. This is actually a tweet on the Met Police's official Twitter account, which was used throughout the protests in London on 26 March.

Technology has always been at the forefront of policing protests, from video cameras, CCTV and now social media. But it is the protesters who are now using technology to their advantage.

Working from a London location, a group of students passed up their chance to march in order to create and run a smartphone app called Sukey which directs people away from trouble.
