Student 'Twitters' his way out of Egyptian jail


edition.cnn.com

On his way to the police station, Buck took out his cell phone and sent a message to his friends and contacts using the micro-blogging site Twitter.

The message only had one word. "Arrested."

Within seconds, colleagues in the United States and his blogger-friends in Egypt -- the same ones who had taught him the tool only a week earlier -- were alerted that he was being held.

This is an odd story but one I thought worthy of posting.

I guess this shows the importance of all of us to join Twitter. It is amazing these days how technology can help us in ways we would never have thought of….
People say they couldn’t survive without their social networks. Here is a good example.

On a lighter note I will now keep an eye on twitter for ATSers with a message of ‘abducted’ or MIB.

Now that's hilarious!

I would have added "Bring bail money" just to be safe "


Edited to add this P.S. - any ATS'ers on Twitter I am LateApexer313 if you want to add me...but don't expect me to bail you out, unless you want to pay the "vig" and it's steep!

Just for the record, who said breaking news had to be all doom and gloom. There’s nothing wrong with light stories is there? And besides. This is slightly ‘alternative’ and does relate to us all….alot of us anyway.

Apexer, you hvae just earned yourself a new follower.

Its always good to have another twit…
But then, given all the PX and fly over threads one would think we had enough twits here already..


I wonder if I will get any credit if this thread converts more people to Twitter?!?
