Real time tweeting in #Tahrir تويتينغ عالية في

There is continued major protest in Cairo and this is driving up tweeting. The recent June 30th demos have had a major impact on driving up tweeting, but this is not a Gezi Park protest.  The event in Egypt is happening on the ground now, real people protesting.  Social Media's role is clearly much less significant with tweets reflecting what is happening not driving it as they did in Turkey.
