Tweets from Tahrir LIVE

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.

Not to make light of the situation, but I'm amazed anything short of Israfil's Horn got this many Egyptians up at 6:30am.

@IrishAlexandria Also a possibility. Basically all speculation at this point. Your guess as good as mine.

@iyad_elbaghdadi @LibyaLiberty Perhaps I've watched too many action flicks, but this seems like a classic diversion before real operation.

@DaliaEzzat_ @Samueltadros More insidiously, perhaps a diversionary tactic?

Not to go all Action Movie, but bombing an odd target at a weird time seems like a classic diversion before hitting the *real* target #Egypt

Bomb blast in #Egypt this morning. Hard to believe the Italian Center was sole/intended target. Still developing. twitter.com/degner/status/…

@ZaidJilani Not quite that direct a relationship. Same goes for making voters more informed. The effect on actual races is often negligible.

@rabiasquared Yeah, I figured for something that granular, it had to come from one of those two sources. Will check it out--thanks!

@rabiasquared Interesting. Is that stat from one of the Pew or Gallup polls, or another source?

Remember when Antonio Banderas played an Arab who joins some Vikings to fight monsters? Well, part of that story isn't completely silly...
