Twitter alert: Things I miss about Quetta

Local twitter users established a trend #ThingsIMissAboutQuetta, which trended in Pakistan.

Web Desk April 19, 2012

Quetta, a city which is currently in the news for targeted killings and missing persons, had more to it than just violence. The roads of the city which are usually swarmed by protestors now, have had their fair share of city-like hustle and bustle in the past.

A trend #ThingsIMissAboutQuetta was established by local Twitter users to share their beautiful memories of the city which was once referred to as Little London.

We as Karachiites are thankful to the people in Quetta they block out all the cold wind coming from Afghanistan from reaching us. :)
