Egyptian government moves to block Twitter as protests continue


by Larry Geller

Egyptian government reacts to revolution—this from Twitter just in:

“We can confirm that Twitter was blocked in Egypt around 8am PT today. It is impacting both Twitter.com & applications,” Twitter communications head Sean Garrett just tweeted out via their new PR account. “We believe that the open exchange of info & views benefits societies & helps govts better connect w/ their people,” he continued in a second tweet.
