Twitter, WordPress execs in Iraq to help country use new media – CNN.com. Interesting piece on CNN today about Raanan Bar-Cohen, one of nine technology executives, who begin their third day in Iraq on Tuesday as part of a U.S. State Department-led trip on how the war-battered country can effectively use new media as it rebuilds. Go Raanan! He has posted a couple of entries from Baghdad and has a few photos up on Flickr.

    That’s awesome! It’ll be an interesting experiment to see how Iraq takes to social news vs. traditional media. I’ve been told that the country has a much higher use of cell phones for texting than most, so things like Twitter as a news source could be huge for the general population.
