Tweeting The Revolution
A new book uses the tweets of various participants to paint a picture of the recent revolution in Egypt.
The effect of Twitter on the revolution in Egypt earlier this year is undeniable. The constant real-time updates on the progress of the uprising served to augment the final outcome, in part because of the tweets’ power to continually inform everyone en masse as to the growing and changing sentiments of those involved. This aided in unifying the larger group ideologically, as well as their actions.
