Texas Twitter Tweeting Brought Me The News That Egypt's Hosni Mubarak Has Stepped Down As Egypt's President
The Tweet that caught my eye and had me turning on my TV was "President Mubarak has stepped down as president of Egypt."
Reading the Tweets about Egypt stream into Twitter is borderline addictive.
Some of the Twitter Tweets....
"My sisters and brothers in Egypt: I am American. I am a father. I am a Jew. I weep in joy for you."
"Dammit. All of us at work want to see Egypt coverage, but THE MAN has blocked all video streaming. I need a mini TV at my desk"
"And the people of Egypt have spoken...we celebrate with Egyptians!"
"Soooooo proud of Egypt."
"This just in: "Hosni Mubarak steps down as President of Egypt. Cable news networks have simultaneous orgasm."
"Breaking: Omar Suleiman announces that Mubarak has resigned."
"17 days to take down a 30 year regime."
"Mubarak has stepped down as president. Egypt liberated and no bloodshed which is good."
"Congratulations, Egypt!!! The determination and ferocity of the people inspires billions around the world...now who's next?"
"Mubarak-ectomy is COMPLETE!! the monster is OUT!! Long live Egypt. Long live Egyptian youth!! ya rab yehmeekom le mar."

"Please wait while uninstalling rest of dictators of the world."
"Yeahhh! One less crook in power. Egypt is free! Great example that should contaminate other societies where dictators rule!"
"Egypt conquered. What next? Saudi Arabia?"
