From the Spanish article[edit]

I have added incident aftermath and timeline sections which are translated from the Spanish article. Can someone who knows how add the requisite template reflecting this? Thanks. μηδείς (talk) 19:36, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Timeline of poor references[edit]

Please, oh please can we stop adding the mainly unreferenced "timeline" to this article, at least until it's no longer on the main page? The Rambling Man (talk) 22:16, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

What are you talking about? Except for the one single line marked reference needed every item is either refd in the timeline or in the body already. μηδείς (talk) 22:19, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, good call, 13 lines without in-line references, and a bunch of entirely messed up references added to an article on the main page of Wikipedia. Pure genius. The Rambling Man (talk) 22:23, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Use of Twitter-related terminology[edit]

I noticed that the article uses the word "tweet" and related terms to refer to Twitter posts. I feel that this is non-neutral in a subtle way -- to fully understand this article, you must accept Twitter's marketing terminology. I would prefer more descriptive terms like "Twitter post" or "Twitter message". Does anyone know if there are any style guidelines pertaining to this? (talk) 04:37, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

I understand what you mean, however most major media outlets use the word "tweet" as the accepted terminology for a post on Twitter. -- LuK3 (Talk) 05:32, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Concur. If you don't know what a "tweet" is, then you likely don't know what Twitter is. Hiberniantears (talk) 06:59, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Three disappeared[edit]

There are three people missing. Let's stay tuned. [1] ComputerJA (talk) 23:15, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Drug cartel[edit]

So I'm hearing stories that authorities are withholding information that it was drug cartel related because it sheds light on the incompetence of the administrations "War on drugs". Any truth?

  • I've heard about those rumors too, but nothing has been confirmed. ComputerJA (talk) 02:44, 4 February 2013 (UTC)


Preliminary reports indicate that gas accumulation was the cause of the explosion. [2] ComputerJA (talk) 03:07, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

terrrible writing, awful article[edit]

this: "The building was completely evacuated in the minutes following the explosion.[6] In the hours after the blast, about 30 people were reported to be trapped in debris,[6] and searches continued into the next day, as Pemex CEO Emilio Lozoya said there were indications that some people remained under the rubble.[7]"

is contradictory the building was EITHER "completely evacuated in the minutes following the explosion" OR "In the hours after the blast, about 30 people were reported to be trapped in debris"]

could do with a total rewrite too! (talk) 15:43, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

  • If you see any mistakes, you can correct the grammar/spelling errors yourself. ComputerJA (talk) 17:32, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

COMPLETELY MISLEADING ARTICLE TITLE: The main tower was not involved at all[edit]

This article must be revised to change its present title, as the main building (Tower) was not involved at all in the explosion. It needs to refer to "Edificio B-2" as this was the building affected by the explosion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:16, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
