Predicting continued unrest in Bahrain


Twitter results for Bahrain are coming in quickly follow the twitter thread here

We are seeing relatively high tweeting near Saar in the north west of Bahrain today. On our Clima Tweeter Meter score we are presently seeing over 40, normally we would expect 15 from an area this size.

global media bombarded with 'normal news' about - a new credit card, eu storage asset deal, bmi hospital deal..

In the past high scores in the north west of Bahrain have come before significant protests. Therefore based upon this and the activity on the twitter hashtage #bahrain we are anticipating continued political unrest this week in the island kingdom.


UPDATE:
We have seen a sudden surge in tweeting from the Capital city Manama



See Manama tweeting level

This is confirmed by the recent explosion in tweets to the Bahrain hashtag. There has been a great deal of bad news coming from Bahrain, and we anticipate a tense week ahead as the emergency law continues.

We are also seeing an number of facebook pages suddenly being published featuring images and stories of violence against protesters in Bahrain. These include:




We are also seeing rising tweeting coming from the central town of Isa, which has seen earlier classes with the regime.
