A quick sample of tweets:
IdoLiven Witness @ #Bishkek: "Whole night, shopping malls&offices were robbd,smashd,crackd.Evrybody's responsible 4 the happnings.Evrybody has fault"
coach_char RT @freebalance: #Bishkek remains calm, local people cautiously optimistic, bit too much hyperbole from media like #bbc #kyrgyzstan
kevinnomad White House is being looted as of 1100 and there are no police in center. The power vacuum is dangerous. #freekg #newkg #bishkek #kyrgyzstan
