Seeing a very surge in tweeting in Saudi Arabia

We are seeing a surge in tweeting in Jeddah Saudi Arabia today. Most people would not associate the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with twitter, but we do see a regular light tweets coming from Jeddah. Today we have seen a surprising surge. Looking at the news on twitter this may be related to the blocking of @, Egyptian democracy organizer from Saudi twitter.

This kind of mindless censorship usually just raises public interest in sites like Twitter.

Also with issues in Syria, Bahrain and Libya along with ongoing repression of pro-democracy in Saudi itself is giving people a lot to talk about. And one can bet that the official Saudi media is empty of content.
