With Speak2Tweet, Tweet by just making a Call

The ongoing protests & subsequent blocking of internet in Egypt has enabled a new service called Speak2Tweet. Google, Twitter & Saynow, a company acquired by Google have developed an application called Speak2Tweet. In this, any one with a voice connection can call the 3 international numbers & leave a message. This will be tweeted with a #egypt automatically by the system. People can also listen to these messages at twitter.com/speak2tweet. With countries blocking social media sites, this represents a radical new way of communication with the outside world.
