    "Time for Twitter in Tikrit?" is from the April 23, 2009 edition of the Express. A group of internet entrepreneurs including a co-founder of twitter and representatives from Google and Yahoo are in Baghdad (yes, the mispelling bagdad is on purpose) to meet with Iraqi leadership to discuss business opportunities in what they think is a growing market. Now it may seem silly to hawk your web 2.0 in a country that can't guarantee electricity for the 5% who have internet access that's no better than modem speeds. But almost everyone in Iraq has a cell phone. The mobile web market could be potentially very profitable. Web 2.0, always looking for the quick dangerous buck. Distributed by Tubemogul.
