From Facebook to being booked within 48 hours

TWO youths will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday morning less than 48 hours since a video of a racist outburst - allegedly delivered by one and filmed by the other - surfaced and sparked a social media campaign to find and out them.

The men, aged 17 and 18, were charged on Sunday night over the incident at Indooroopilly train station on October 2.

It's alleged the younger of the two swore and racially abused a Queensland Rail-contracted security guard while the elder recorded it.

Police will also allege the 17-year-old spat on a security guard.

A five minute video of the encounter was uploaded to Facebook and by Saturday afternoon was being shared widely.
