Twitter as means of social justice

Youth Specialties
July 11th, 2008 has been following the account of an American student journalist and his Egyptian translator who were jailed in Egypt. Using Twitter to notify people of his capture, his university quickly contacted authorities who arranged for his release. The translator, however, remained in custody until this week. Read the full story here. This has me wondering what other ways can Twitter be used to rally people to social justice? Ideas?
