    Student 'Twitters' his way out of Egyptian jail

    By Mallory Simon

    (CNN) -- James Karl Buck helped free himself from an Egyptian jail with a one-word blog post from his cell phone.

    Buck, a graduate student from the University of California-Berkeley, was in Mahalla, Egypt, covering an anti-government protest when he and his translator, Mohammed Maree, were arrested April 10.

    On his way to the police station, Buck took out his cell phone and sent a message to his friends and contacts using the micro-blogging site Twitter.

    The message only had one word. "Arrested."
