Tracking the Middle East’s Hashtag Uprisings

We here at ReadWriteWeb have been following the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt with great interest. We’ve even written about them once or twice. Our eyes are now on Bahrain and Yemen and all the other uprisings that have been “scheduled” via date-driven hashtags.(Egypt used #jan25 to aggregate information about that uprising, for instance, and Bahrain #feb14.)

So, to keep track of these rapidly changing situations, we (and be “we” I mean “Jared“) have created a widget that tracks news about the uprisings, their context and their build-up by pulling the feeds from them from Twitter Search. And we (and by “we” I mean “I”) would like to share them with you.

Here’s the widget. If we’re missing a #date, please let us know in the comments.
