More than 100 cashpoints in Latvia had run out of money on December 12 following a banking panic apparently caused by rumors on the Twitter social media network. A total of 126 out of 298 ATMs belonging to Swedbank, the country's biggest lender, had run dry after demand for cash soared 10-fold late on December 11, according to a statement on the Swedish-owned bank's homepage.
