While Twitter has (relatively) long been the venue for discussing major news events, the power of photographs are making Instagram an important social network, as well.

In addition to reposting photos from the news, users have also been posting images that combine The Dark Knight and the dark events of Aurora, Colorado.

In some cases it's hard to tell the origin of the images, as they may have been reposted by the people who first put them on Instagram. The problem if attribution has been a significant issue for aggregation sites such as  Pinterest  , for example.

But in this case, the reposting is at least a sincere effort to spread the message.
