Looking for signs of Bahrain cyber-activism today



The only sign we see of elevated tweeting is this region just south east of the former Pearl Roundabout. Its higher than most of Bahrian but not highly by the standards of the area. We have been reading on twitter that today a group would protest the GCC occupation and emergency law. Previous protests in Bahrain had always been accompanied by a spike in geo-tagged tweeting. It will be interesting to see what changes in the protests and their use of twitter on mobile devices the crack down may have brought.
