Bahrain re-revolution to begin?

There is definitely some activity today in Bahrain. The level of geo-tagged tweeting coming from the island has risen today, Friday the 24th of June, just after mid-day prayers. Also the tweeter tag #Bahrain is on fire, more active at time than #Greece.

We have seen some tweets that Bahrain may experience new demonstrations soon. We are currently tracking Bahrain Capital closely.

We suspect from chats with people in Bahrain and news that most protesters have learned to use things like Tor. The experience of the crack down came as something of a shock to a nation were people were using Foursquare and Gowalla. Future protests will be more secretive and less relayed on social networks.
