Some journalists and bloggers on the ground are still tweeting. But connection seems patchy, and lots of information is unconfirmed. Here are some people I’m following, in no particular order, who are managing to get information out every now and then:
@Jan25Voices (speaking to “Egyptians behind the blocked Internet, tweeting their words in real time.”)
@Speak2tweet (“Click the link in each tweet to hear a voice tweet from folks inside Egypt. Call +16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855 to leave a tweet and hear tweets.”)
Five who aren’t on the ground but share fantastic information:
UPDATE: Jillian C York has put together a public twitter list for following people on the ground in Egypt: jilliancyork/in-egypt
Also, follow the #Jan25 and #Tahrir hashtags, as well as #Egypt.
IF YOU WANT TO HELP: Check this Huffington Post article, How To Help Egypt Get Online (which includes a link to some resources put together by Anonymous), and this article on blogcritics on how to help when governments control communications, which has Egypt-specific links.
