A Point of View, Libya, Middle East & North Africa, Politics | | February 24, 2011 at 11:09

Tweetosphere is vital. There are several links to follow but Retweeting keeps you in touch with most of the news that is coming out of Libya as well as what’s being said around the world. Check these sources out. Or follow me on Twitter @LVworldview for a my summary.

I follow: (this list is far from complete sources for Libya. But I get hundreds of tweets a day from these.)
@SultanAlQasseim (translates speeches etc from Arabic to English – often as they are happening.)
@ChangeInLibya  – Libyan Dude
@ShababLibya – Libyan Youth Movement
@evanchill – Evan Hill who retweets intl articles on Libya
@SaloumehZ – Libyan woman
@BBC Breaking
@ElBaradei – Nobel Peace Prize Egyptian
@bencnn – Ben Wedeman CNN  - first intl reporter to enter Libya
@ladyroisin – London
@al_andros – “evolution is better than revolution, revolution is better than nothing”
@ToneyBrooks – journalist and thinger

http://www.livestream.com/libya17feb – this is on the ground based in Benghazi. There’s an international chat room which can be right on target with updates and flying rumors from Libya as well as a lot of opinion and sometimes useless back and forth. Still worth watching. Was the ONLY source out of Libya for days.

www.libya17feb.com – website put up and maintained by youth movement with video clips, latest reports from on the ground in Libya.
TV and Internet News:
Al Jazeera English (AJE) – I watch it livestream on the internet  http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/
BBC world news and BBC America telecast on PBS in the States
CNN – Anderson Cooper. A lot of opinion and comment on CNN comes from people who don’t know what they’re talking about. (In my humble opinion)
SkyNews at http://news.sky.com/skynews/World-News
BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-12307698
