January 25, 2011 marks a turning point in Egypt's history which saw a popular uprising topple the thirty-year incumbent regime in just eighteen days.
Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets, with Tahrir Square as the epicenter of the revolution. The Twitter posts of the activists who brought heady days of revolution to Egypt in early 2011 paint an exhilarating picture of an uprising in real-time. This book brings together a selection of key tweets in a compelling, fast-paced narrative, allowing the story of the uprising to be told directly by the people who made it.
History has never before been recounted in this fashion. The tweet limit of 140 characters concentrated the feelings of those using Twitter -- raw emotion burst from many of their messages. To read these tweets is to embark on a roller coaster ride, from the surprise and excitement of the first demonstration, to the horror of the violence perpetrated by Mubarak's thugs, to the final ecstasy when the dictator resigns.
