I did a search interested to see what the take up of Twitter is among this cohort of people; um – not great. Maadi the place in Egypt is mentioned numerous times – most probably by an age group a decade or half a decade older. Then I am only using the one word search; ‘Maadi’. Could also be that phone to phone texting is so ubiquitous here that Twittering is of little interest. That and it’s public nature and ease of use or not.
Now I have found: Twitter Alerts. Well a Twitter alert service called TweetBeeps.
