THE internet is emerging as one of the big heroes of the pro-democracy, anti-despot movement in the Middle East.

It's regarded as being right up there with that courageous Muammar Gaddafi impersonator who has been suggesting absent members of the Libyan army are simply retreating to rest and relax.

Thanks to the cybersphere, Arabic members of generation TXT are using mobile phone cameras to film political violence and uploading the footage online.

This, in turn, is leading to more civilian fury and more amateur surveillance.

The regime-toppling threat posed by social networking has led one of Hillary Clinton's senior advisers to describe the communications network as the Che Guevara of the 21st century.
