They’re liquid, mobile, digital savvy, adaptive Warriors fighting a nasty regime, surrounded by enemies with sticks and knives and Molotov cocktails but they go on fighting with the powerful weapon … Twitter. This revolution is Twitterized more than any other.

Bloggers have an obligation to echo the reports streaming from Tahrir Square and elsewhere in Egypt and around the Arab world to create a great echo through the Internet of the struggles of people to communicate and peacefully protest. Shutting down the Internet for a week in Egypt was a reminder, if we needed any, that one of the first moves of a dictatorial regime is to cut off the means of communication and harass, attack and attempt to control the media. We are the media. #jan25 #egypt #Tahrir
