Egypt and Twitter

I was just sent another terrific cartoon about President Hosni Mubarak and the continuing protests in Egypt by Egyptian cartoonist Sherif Arafa (check out more of his recent cartoons about the protests here).

With other forms of media shut down, Twitter has come to the rescue for journalists who are in Egypt and reporting on the protests. It seems the movement to oust Mubarak isn’t on TV or radio, but instead pushing the President our of power 140 characters at a time.
