The revolution continues - live updates from Tahrir Square

Live updates from tweeters featured in the book Tweets from Tahrir: Egypt’s Revolution as It Unfolded, in the Words of the People Who Made It.

Despite toppling the dictator Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, Egypt remained under military rule and brutal repression. The revolution continues; activists are still protesting and still using Twitter to get the word out. Tweets from Tahrir told the story of the 18-day uprising that removed Mubarak; this page brings live coverage of the struggle.
