distress beacon tweet


Berkeley student James Karl Buck's tweet from Mahalla, Egypt on 10 April shortly after he was arrested for covering an anti-government protest, as reported by CNN in Student Twitters his Way Out of Jail.

Buck was released after friends, family and followers got busy upon receiving his tweet. After some time he was able to tweet: "Free".

Buck's translator, Mohammed Maree, is believed to still be in prison.
