Bypassing Egypt's web blackout

How a US-based student made sure the voices of Egyptian protesters were heard.


    After internet services were disconnected in Egypt, protesters were prevented from speaking to the world.

    But John Scott Railton, a Los Angeles based student, took it upon himself to upload messages onto micro-blogging site Twitter.

    He started making calls and posting messages on a Twitter account he created for the Egyptian protests.

    Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Los  Angeles.
