Format: Kindle Edition
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!

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!

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.

I had no idea, until I read this book by the journalist Denis Campbell, that social media played such a big role in the toppling of President Mubarak in the Egyptian revolution.
This book tells the story, in collected tweets, of how the oppressed people of Egypt used technology and the Internet to revolutionise their society. Other dictators or regimes in the region and around the globe will be studying this book thus making it an important contribution and record of the history of the Arab Spring.
I enjoyed reading it for the fascinating real-time glimpses into real human stories as they occurred whilst the revolution unfolded. It will also give cause to think about when and what you tweet or put into your social media because it can have consequences and will be picked up by authorities and readers you never suspected were following. A powerful tool for social change.
