This is an example of how technology has changed reporting in the Arab world. At Islam Online, the strikers are sending out twitters and al Masry al Youm quickly produced a photo and audio display to describe what is happening at the large facility in Cairo.

If you know of other examples of covering of breaking news using new technology in the Arab world let me know. And what do you think of this? What difference does it make for Arab journalists?
