Google Gathering Egyptian Protest Videos At CitizenTube


YouTube has been flooded with videos from the Egyptian protests and is now collecting them at – Google’s news and politics channel, the YouTube blog reported. “We understand how closely the world is following these events, and want to help people access and share this information quickly and easily on YouTube.”

The site has done this in the past for events like the Haitian earthquake and the Iranian protests.

The YouTube blog explains: “We’re helping people do this in three ways:

* Highlighting the latest footage on CitizenTube, our news and politics channel, and inviting people to submit video they’ve come across.
* Pointing our users directly to these videos through banners at the top of YouTube pages, and through links alongside YouTube videos.
* Streaming live coverage of Al Jazeera’s broadcasts about the unfolding events, on both their Arabic and English YouTube channels.”
