Cat-and-mouse in Zimbabwe's election cyber war
Description
Prominent among these is votewatch263.org, a '' crowdsourcing '' website that lets people report incidents - positive or negative - that are then plotted on an interactive map, a concept first used in Kenya after violent elections in 2007.

"News and information is circulating faster now than at any other time. We don't need to listen to the ZBC bulletins or rely on a copy of the Daily News to know what's going on," said votewatch263 spokeswoman Koliwe Nyoni Majama.
