Tweeting goes even quieter after several opposition figures arrested hours after security forces dispersed pro-democracy protesters from Manama centre

The web 3.0 lab has again noticed that the tweeting in and around Bahrain Pearl Roundabout has plummeted to as low as 8 near the Roundabout at out of a possible 100 after the country has aggressively sent its military after the pro-democracy protesters yesterday and when house to house and arrested opposition leaders.

The web 3.0 lab had a reading of 89 out of 100 in response to the government sending in a Saudi led intervention on March 15th, but noticed a drop in tweeting now around Lulu.

This may be due to exhaustion of suppression of the web, but we are concerned that many of the most active tweeps in the Bahrain revolt have been arrested or forced in to hiding.
