A graduate student named James Karl Buck helps free himself from an Egyptian jail with a one-word blog post from his cell phone. The post was broadcast using the micro-blogging platform Twitter. He is currently trying to save his translator Mohammed Maree, who is still being held.

Broken hearted? Maybe you’ll like something over here instead?
