Mit Twitter kommst Du aus dem Gefängnis frei

sagt zumindest diese Story bei CNN.

James Karl Buck helped free himself from an Egyptian jail with a one-word blog post from his cell phone.

Buck, a graduate student from the University of California-Berkeley, was in Mahalla, Egypt, covering an anti-government protest when he and his translator, Mohammed Maree, were arrested April 10.

On his way to the police station, Buck took out his cell phone and sent a message to his friends and contacts using the micro-blogging site Twitter.

The message only had one word. “Arrested.”

Ok, die einzige Merkwürdigkeit ist, dass er sein Telefon behalten durfte.
