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!

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.
