Egyptians React to Turmoil on Twitter

The last few hours, days and weeks have been difficult for Egyptians who expected a modern, democratic government to lead them moving forward. In the wake of scandal and resignations, as we have reported on The Brenner Brief, Egyptians have turned to Twitter to make sure the world is hearing their reactions in a nation whose government does not seem to care.

Remember, Christians are being put in a very frightening situation in Egypt as the Islamists take control.

And, the Egyptians do not trust what is happening with the referendum vote counting.

Nor do they trust their own government or military.

Translation to English from Twitter: Sisi gives orders to the armed forces to treat citizens well during the referendum .. Threat and an implicit recognition of mistreating army of civilians A7A EgyArmy Egypt

This may be the new Egypt if the fear and tension continue.

This is interesting, indeed. The new Constitution does away with the position of vice-president.

At least some people are finding humor in it.

And things that make you say “duh.”

For more information on the situation in Egypt on Twitter, considering following hashtags #Egypt, #Cairo, #Tahrir, #Morsi, #Morsy (alternate spelling) and #Jan25.
