Unrest continues in the Arab world and more countries are joining the “wave” of protests which started last December in Tunisia, then reached Egypt. Now Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Algeria and tomorrow probably Morocco,too, are joining.
It`s very critical to get information from these countries where foreign news correspondents on the ground are few or none (like Libya), or even Arab news channels as Al Jazeera are banned or do have problems with the local government (like in Bahrain).
But thanks to user-generated media and social networks we are overcoming this problem (at least a bit).
Twitter is, I guess, in this moment, the best source on what`s happening if you choose the right network to follow.
