UPDATE: The morning of the 9th of April saw a military crack down on the square, later on the 9th of April we have been hearing about a effort by protesters to retake the Tahrir. We are watching the tweeting levels coming from inside and around Tahrir today.

We are watching the surge in tweets coming from Tahrir Square on another massive protest. There is a flood of posts coming from the square many can be read on the twitter hashtag #Tahrir
