Following in the footsteps of Vodafone in Egypt, the biggest mobile phone network in Libya, Libyana, had been sending anti-protest text messages since the start of the uprising in February. Not any more.
The translation of the message above comes from Libyan Youth Movement:
“Allah is Greater,
We congratulate the Libyan people on the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi, and we urge them to go out in the streets to preserve and protect the public belongings.
Long Live Free Libya,
The National Transitional Council. “
The late Gil Scott-Heron claimed that “the revolution will not be televised”.
He never mentioned mobile phones though.
