Law enforcement crisis and hostage negotiators are conflict resolution experts working in situations that are intense, emotionally charged and potentially volatile.  The negotiator needs to have the ability to use a variety of skills in order to establish communication with the person who initiated the incident.  The method of communication has increasingly become diverse and an emerging factor that increasingly must be accounted for is the role technology plays during the incident.  Technology, such as social media platforms including Facebook and twitter, as well as text messaging have all played a role in recent events.
