A team of local web developers have launched an ‘Arabic Twitter’ with the aim of making it easier to read and write Arabic messages.

A few Arabic-speaking Twitter users that spoke to questioned the authenticity of, which uses the original Twitter logo in reverse on their homepage, because it requires users to sign in with their Twitter account details in order to use the service.

In the FAQ section of the site, links to contributing team members are dubious as well – one directs users to a webpage with a ‘hacked’ message, while Google has identified another as a phishing site.
