Google and Twitter Helps Egypt Stay Connected

With Egypt being virtually shut out from the outside world by having their internet and mobile services shut down, Google has teamed up with Twitter and SayNow to help Egyptians get their messages out using any voice connection.

All they need to do is dial one of three international phone numbers (+16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855), leave a voicemail and the service will instantly tweet the message using the #egypt hashtag.

An internet connection is not required to make use of this service and anyone can listen to these messages by dialing the same numbers or by visiting www.twitter.com/speak2tweet
