You don't need to setup an account or anything... Just follow the link provided on the first post and it will take you to the update....


Also, for those interested, 7:00PM Iraq time is only a few short minutes away! (11:00AM EST)!!!


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.

A little to high tech for me, I will just read the good stuff posted here at DV.

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!!!

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.

This was the EXACT thing I was thinking reading through this thread.... every "TWEET" that was posted was basically confirmed by al Jazeera in the live feed a lot of us have been watching for hours... so really I could technically set up a Twitter account and pose as "live from inside" and just sit in my living room and Tweet updates I get live from Iraq when reported :o

Not bashing the thread as the intel on here seems correct and identical to the live news I'm watching from my computer!

He never claimed to be "live from inside", others just assumed that. As I just posted, according to his Twitter he's in London so I assume he's indeed watching the live feed and posting updates. But that is great for me as I'm unable to watch nor do I speak the language!

X2 lol

This is english Al Jazeera - Iraqi related news... Keep in mind it cycles a lot of DEVELOPING stories around the world - especially a major terror attack/bombing that just happened about an hour ago in Pakistan... so you kind of have to let it play for awhile and they will cut in when there is a development from Iraq... just keep your ears tuned for when they switch to Iraq - and tune out if you don't care about the other stuff they are talking about around the world, etc...


I got this from someone else on here (we are staying pretty active in Steve's thread in the "news" section about updates on Iraq FYI)....


Hope it helps for those that were interested!
