Google works around Engyptian locout to let people tweet

If you follow the goings on around the globe you probably know that the government in Egypt has cut its citizens off from all communications during a period of unrest inside the country. That means that people inside the country can't access any communications like the web and email.

I guess phones are still working though and Google has teamed up with Twitter and its new purchase SayNow to offer a new service that will let anyone anywhere leave a tweet using a voice mail and listen to tweets using their phone. The service was created over last weekend and is fully operational right now.

The service is called speak2tweet and can be used by calling any of these numbers - +16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855. To post a tweet you leave a voice mail and you can listen to tweets from the numbers too. All tweets made by the service will have the #egypt hashtag.
