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."

An old high school friend gave me an invite, and I think I have a few to give out, too - so if anyone wants to check it out, fire me a PM. I don't really see the point of the service, personally.
