Google launches speak-to-tweet service in Egypt

Great news! If you are one of those who are glued to the crisis in Egypt, well then, this one is a real good news hoping that we can still get connected to the people who are in the offline world.

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.
