Not only did OSINT assist with accurate news reporting, it also helped the civilians on the ground make well-informed decisions and escape combat zones.
Not trends per se, but the impact of the Russian invasion on Russian OSINT tools, e.g. Their access being limited or disabled by the state because they have realised we are using their tools against them.
With the Musk-Twitter union and the censorship Musk has imposed already on tracking his own jet for example , I am concerned about Twitter become an inhospitable platform for the OSINT community.
