Twitter tells a sad story in Iraq by being silent

Map made with tracking tool for mapping twitter map shows 2 hours of mobile tweets from the city, just two were registered.
 This maps sums of the tragedy of Iraq.  Today in Baghdad a Arab Union summit started to discuss the future of Syria.  This morning a series of terrorist attacks hit the city.  In any open democratic society twitter would be going nuts as journalists and concerned people tried to communicate and get in touch.

But in all of Iraq we find evidence of maybe 5 tweets. The map of the Baghdad shows only two mobile tweets coming from the Green Zone.  The US invasion, which was suppose to bring democracy and economic prosperity has left a nation primitive and isolated by global standards.
