For those stuck in Egypt without the Internet, Google, Twitter and SayNow have teamed up to create Speak2Tweet, an innovative voicemail system: Call a number and leave a message, and the system blasts it out into the universe in the form of a tweet with the hashtag #Egypt.

Good thing, because according to a recent report, Egypt is shutting down wireless service again.
