More About the Author

Denis G. Campbell has provided Americas Commentary to global television (BBC, itv, Al Jazeera, CNN, AVRO, MSNBC), radio (BBC, China Ragio international, npr, PBS) and numerous print magazines and newspapers for 10-years.

He is an American/British journalist and author based in the UK. As Editor of UK Progressive Magazine, he is a frequent political, business and Middle East analyst and contributor.

Author of the book Egypt Unshackled, he detailed the events of 18 days of revolution in Cairo via the social media communications of those on the ground.

In Lipstick on THIS Pig? - the 1st e-book in this WTF Are they Doing? series, he talked about how far off the rails the Republican/GOP/Tea Party has ventured via their collective ODS (Obama derangement Syndrome).

In The Vagina Wars and The Vagina Wars on Steroids he details the GOP's War on Women, from wages to the Pill, abortion to Donna Reed stereotypes, the US Republican Party is racing backwards to the 1940s at breakneck speed. He also examines the impact of the general battle on the 99%, the mendacity of the current GOP candidate and the obscene amount of money in the political process.

His latest, Magic Underwear in the Situation Room examines the USA's first ever Mormon candidate for president, the history of that church, questions whether a member of the LDS Church can be supported by the RW Christian conservatives currently and the social issues ruling the election cycle.

He writes from a 200-year-old farmhouse aHe writes from a 200-year-old farmhouse atop the breath-taking cliffs of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. This is a place where history saw landowners crash returning ships from the Asian spice trade on the rocks below by tying lanterns to sheep necks and then use the timbres of those wrecked ships to build a pub behind a circa 1100 monastery's remains where the brothers brewed their own beer and their carousing was the bane of the Abbot of Neath.
Wales is a land of great stories and there is no better place on earth from which to tell them.

My last thought to you:BUY THIS BOOK!
Bill Byrnes
This book tells the story, in collected tweets, of how the oppressed people of Egypt used technology and the Internet to revolutionise their society.

It was a ground-breaking description of how social-media can shape history. Denis Campbell did a masterful job at setting the stage for the conflict, and organizing what had to be thousands of tweets into a masterful flow of information & emotions. History has never been more gripping than Denis'description of the last few days of the conflict. This is a MUST read for anyone interested in current events, and could a great addition to several college courses.My last thought to you:BUY THIS BOOK!

AMAZED; I am amazed at this book. I expected Dennis' writing to be powerful and well executed. What I did not expect is the brilliant formatting of the book, which makes it a "no put down" masterpiece. I believe, for the first time in history, twittered messages (social media) sent from the scene of important breaking news (Egypt in rebellion against dictatorship) become the centerpiece. The author skillfully introduces these dramatic and emotional messages sent from the square containing all the emotion of the moment as people suffer and die and hope and victor. WOW what a book. It should alter the way the world is structured. Don't miss this GREAT LITERATURE! Thanks Dennis Campbell.

Even if you have never explored Twitter, this book will give you a taste of citizen journalism in action and the new manner in which established news channels adapted quickly. Campbell shows how Twitter was utilized to flash breaking news from the front lines and facilitate teamwork of large numbers of people in urgent situations.

I watched Twitter avidly and spellbound as Tweets of this Egypt uprising started flooding Twitter: the #Jan25 movement in 2011. I also cued up Al Jezeera English online in partial screen on my computer, as one of the best sources of journalism about unfolding events, and Google Maps and Google Earth for better perspective. I shortly started "following" on Twitter some of the key individuals later mentioned in this book, as well as this author.

Denis Campbell's book provides a much deeper and wider context for what we saw unfolding those eighteen days in Egypt. He has made sense of raw data, weaving it into a coherent whole. Each of those eighteen days warrants an individual chapter in his book, revealing backstory and key "Tweets" sent out that day. In Campbell's book we can revisit just how Egyptians were conferring in the heat of the moment and "Using social media to @#:) the System". "How 140 characters [in a typical Twitter message] can remove a dictator in 18 Days" indeed!

Format: Paperback
This work is a picture perfect presentation of why the revolution in Egypt is a historic event of grand proportions. The role of Social Media was extremely important and gave Freedom fighters a platform to show and tell what they experienced (instances of brotherhood as well as atrocities). Campbell gives a wonderful impression of history-in-the-making, awesome and breathtaking at several instances. Apart from the thumping good read, there is another important aspect to this book: Social Media Journalism will not go away anytime soon; those who want to know what it actually is, why it is important and what questions it raises, should read this book now.
