Oman update

Twitter accounts in Oman do not post with geotag data, so we are unable to get any idea of the geographic intensity or distribution of twitter use on the ground as we can in Bahrain.

But from watching the twitter flow on the hashtag Oman we are seeing a constant flow of tweets, but most of them seem to be by curious outsiders. Still we are seeing a number of photos being posted on twitter including protesters taking a Globe Roundabout in the city of Sohar.

Based entirely on chatter on twitter it looks like a rather aggressive and potentially violent protest is forming in Oman. We anticipate that protests will move very quickly in the nation in the coming days.
