Put the hashtags away. Kara Alongi, the 16-year-old Jersey girl whose fake tweet about being kidnapped turned a routine case of a teen runaway into a global sensation, has returned home safely to her family in Clark, NJ. She was picked up by state troopers yesterday evening, walking along the New Jersey Turnpike near Carney's Point, NJ, according to the New York Post. Police won't comment on what she's been up to since she urged her twitter followers to call 911 because someone was in her house, then took a taxi to the train station and bought a ticket to New York City.
So Kara is safe and sound and has 109,000 brand new Twitter followers. Maybe she should start a social media consulting shop?
