Two women were killed when their car collided head-on with that of one of the vice-presidents of Lukoil, the country's largest oil company.
Russian State media and police were quick to blame the women who died in the accident.
But as a result of heated blogs calling for Lukoil boycotts, eye-witness testimony, and people shooting cell phone video and posting it on the Internet, authorities have been forced to conduct an official investigation.
Last year we also saw how the impact of social media affected the political situation in Iran after disputed elections.
Thousands of people were joined together through Facebook and Twitter and many used the sites to upload pictures of police brutality, organize marches and spread information.
