The Telegraph's report is rumor; as the report launched, Algerians were
still tweeting.  The only thing we've been able to verify is that in *one*

was not countrywide by any stretch.

Also, what on earth does "Facebook accounts were deleted across Algeria"
mean?  They didn't even bother to follow that point up.
