Tweets from Iraq

I like to use Twitter to find out in real time what is happening. If you have never tried it try doing a Twitter search when any type of live event is going on. It is phenomenal how many people will tweet while they are at the Academy Awards, or at the President's Inauguration. I thought there has to be a few tweeters in Iraq we just have to look for them. The best one I found is listed down below his user name is "AliKadhmawi". He has been tweeting all day.

[b]I guess when you get to be my age certain things are puzzling. So not wanting to sound " un-informed " what is a twitter? My guess is a news site, but I suspect I am wrong.

[size="3"]Once you are on Ali K's page you will see instructions on how to receive his tweets via text message on your phone. However...you don't even need to go there...just send the message "Follow AliKadhmawi" to 40404. You will then receive his updates as text messages as he posts them.

You don't even need a Twitter account.

[size="3"]Food for thought....

It just occurred to me that even though this seems like a very updated, informed source....

Pls keep in mind we don't know anything about this individual and what or who he represents....

All I'm saying is, keep things in prospective here until verified by multiple sources....

GO RV!!![/size]

I just punched in the coordinates from @AliKadhmawi 's Twitter page and they come up in London outside Heathrow. But of course those could be old or maybe he's watching a live feed on satellite. The latter would at least explain why he's tweeting in English.
