How Google Helps Egyptians Bypass Government Internet Shutdown

I do like Google, of course, first is it has several brilliant services. Second, I respect this company which has brave to say "No" to Chinese government when it required Google doing search filter in some ways. This time, Egyptian shutdown whole internet in Egypt, Google decided give a hand to protesters. In Egypt, people can call some phone numbers: +16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855. This service can keep voice to tweets.

Actually, this service offered by Saynow, Google just acquired this web service. Now, you can check this Twitter - Speak2tweet that allows Egyptians to tweet via voicemail, bypassing the Internet shutdown. It really helps Egyptians, up to now it has over 10,000 followers.
