Since Egyptians still have basically no Internet or SMS connectivity, Google and Twitter have joined forces to give voice to the country’s people. Aware of the journalistic role of social interacting websites like Twitter, played to bypass the media clampdown forced by the Iranian regime, Google launches Twitter work around for Egypt.
Google and Twitter build Speak to Tweet for Egyptians. Google and Twitter team up for Egyptians to send tweets via phone.
What Egyptian people can do is that they can leave a voicemail using a telephone and post is to #egypt on twitter. In this way, peoples with no internet connection can now express their tweets on twitter. The service can be retrieved by leaving a voicemail (which will be twitted automatically on #egypt) on the following phone nos: +16504194196, +390662207294, +97316199855, which can also be used to listen to the voice messages.
People with internet connection can check their #egypt stream or visit twitter.com/speak2tweet.
