In response to Egypt’s attempt to block all internet access in their country, web giant Google launches a service that won’t require internet service but would still allow the people in Egypt to post tweet news. The service, known as SayNow, is a collaboration project of Google with Twitter to make it possible to post tweets by just leaving voice message.
The concept behind the speak-to-tweet service will provide us instant news as reported by those in Egypt. The service will instantly transform all voice messages to tweets which can be found using the hashtag #egypt.
Voice mail messages are sent through numbers +16504194196; +390662207294 or +97316199855. We can also hear these messages online via twitter.com/speak2tweet.
Earlier, Egypt’s four main Internet service providers – Link Egypt, Vodafone/Raya, Telecom Egypt and Etisalat Misr – went offline after days of protests against President Hosni Mubarak.
