Violence in a Last Outpost of European Communism

Foreign Policy wonders if Twitter will bring down the government in Moldova.

They ask: "Could it be that five years after the famous protests in Kiev's Maidan
Square another technology – Twitter – will usher in another revolution
in neighbouring Moldova? Will we remember the events that are now
unfolding in Chisinau not by the color of the flags but by the
social-networking technology used?"

They report the Twitter tag "pman" stands for "Piata Marii Adunari Nationale," the Romanian name for the biggest square in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau.

It's all mostly unintelligible to English speakers, but it's fascinating nevertheless. Could we be watching a revolution in real time?
