Speak-to-tweet service aims to circumvent Egyptian Twitter ban

Google and Twitter have joined forces in a bid to beat a tweet ban imposed by Egyptian telecoms operators after their engineers enabled a Voice to Twitter service that allows protestors to tweet direct from the streets.

Rather than deliberate upon 140 characters to sum up the latest rumour, confrontation or meeting people will be able to dial one of three international numbers to leave a voicemail.

Their contents will subsequently be converted into tweets complete with the #egypt hashtag.

Instead of resorting to the News of the World outside listeners will also be able to listen direct to the messages, simply by dialing in.
