Speak2Tweet Resurrected After Syria Goes Offline

The Internet blackout in Syria is over, but remained out for two days. On Friday Google and Twitter rolled out their Speak2Tweet service again to insure that Syrians would have a world voice just as they did in Egypt during the Arab Spring.

The service, which allows users to send a tweet by phone, was first rolled out last year in order to help netizens in Egypt communicate despite former president Mubarak’s decision to cut the internet there for several days.
