Speak2Tweet was run by google(not telecomix), its impact was low and would
likely have been lower without my organization's (Small World News)
involvement sourcing translation for the content.

It was also very low impact overall due to dependence on access to
international calling. Better options might be distributing content via open
bluetooth (or wifi) nodes for sharing audio reports, calls to action, and
videos internally.

We have been starting to explore bluetooth nodes for content distribution, I
would love to know whether anyone on this list has more experience and might
advise us or point in the direction of best practices, etc.
