Bangalore: Google with its new voice tweeting service is helping Egyptians to communicate with the people around the world. Google, which has recently purchased SayNow Social Voice Platform, has come up with 'Speak-to tweet-service' for them.

Through this service, people can tweet just by using a voice connection. They can leave messages on any one of the given international numbers (+16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855). Immediately the service will tweet the message by using hashtag #egypt, according to Google in a blog posting. This service automatically puts the voice message on a web page which in turn gets linked to twitter message and gets posted to Google's "speak2tweet" twitter account.

The service doesn't require any internet connection. Egyptians have no access to internet service or twitter as all the ISPs (Internet service providers) have been ordered to disconnect from the internet. Even, the Noor Group, one of the largest internet service providers disconnected its services recently.
People seem to be actively using the service. Within a short span of time, there were lots of messages as well as commentaries on the situation.

There are other similar services too which are helping Egyptians connect with the world such as free international internet dial-up numbers.
