Google, SayNow and Twitter Team up to enable tweeting from Egypt!

Google’s announced on its official blog a small project they’ve quickly cobbled together to help Egyptians (who –in the midst of protests — are having serious connectivity issues) communicate via  Twitter. With almost no connection to the internet through normal channels,  Google has made it possible for anyone to send a Tweet simply by dialing one of several international phone numbers (+16504194196, +390662207294 or +97316199855) and leaving a voicemail. What happens next? The service Tweets the message using the hashtag #egypt via the Speak to Tweet account.
