Track Mappable Tweets From Egypt In Real Time

Tyler Durden's picture





 

For those who are getting tired of Al Jazeera's third party Egypt coverage, yet find the real time #Egypt stream on twitter overwhelming, below we present an interface which allows mapping (and this gives a far better sense of orientation) of what is going on where, on in a real time basis. We feel that ahead of tomorrow's million man (+) march which will likely end up with at least one presidential palace being sacked this will be quite a useful function to track the ongoing revolution.

"will likely end up with at least one presidential palace being sacked this will be quite a useful function to track the ongoing revolution."

I wouldn't go that far. The Egyptians will understand that it's in their best interests that Mubarak stays in power, because who knows what's coming next???

I think they should buy stocks which adjust well to inflation (AAPL, for example). This should cover the increase in food prices and help them acquire wealth.

I guess concensus is that anything is better than the Shah..ahhh I mean Mubarak or was that Khomeini ... ya anyone is better than Mubarak, like  Elbaradei, ya he's the guy everyone wants, that is Elbar and the Muslim Brotherhood  - they're anti Osama, anti Israel, (and rumor has it Elbar is even anti-Obama or was that anti-American) but the good news is they are pro Hamas and big supporters of women's and gay rights (actually I'm not sure about the rights thing) but it doesn't matter anything is better than Mubarak. Did someone say that the Brotherhood helped to arange the trade-in of  the Shah for the Ayatollah? That worked out pretty good I hear...

Hey will someone pass a message to the muslim brotherhood. Mubarak is holed up in the ministry building surrounded by the few troops he can trust. He is no longer in control. Dont wait for.him to give you power. He is stalling to.exhaust the.revolution by starvation. Simply set up a government and start giving orders and get everyone back to work. Every ministry building is yours except the ministry whete mubarak is holed up. Get your government going now and get the bureaucrats and police taking orders from you. Bring the police back out on the street and declare forgiveness and a general amnesty.for.police. Get your government running now and get egypt back to normal. In a few weeks mubarak will look ridiculous and impotent hiding behind his elite guard. He can stay there as long as he wants. Make.that ministry building his prison and get on with getting the bureaucracy back in place and.egypt running again. Announce a date for.elections in 6 months.

I completely agree.  Here's some other interesting intellectual capital that was tweeted from Tunisia addressed to Egypt:

1. Demonstrate at night, this has many advantages.

a) reduce the chances of being arrested since they can't identify you!!

b) you can avoid being photographed for identification later

c) you tire the riot police; you sleep during the day and riot at night while they work around the clock

d) you eliminate the element of abduction of secret police

 

2. avoid heroic acts.  If your fate is to die, do not make it by bullets of the dictator...

3. use the media to voice your rights.  outside pressure is extremely effective

4. use black spray paint or paint to cover the windows of police cars.  This will paralyze their movement

In his view, the continued struggle of the Palestinians will inexhorably lead to the collapse of the State of Israel. Which is why Tel-Aviv has no choice but to "transfer" the Israeli Arabs and the stateless Palestinians beyond safe borders (that is, not only outside the 1948 borders but also from the 1976 occupied territories and, ideally, from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip). In the event the Europeans opposed such a transfer, in order to survive Tel Aviv will be forced to destroy the European capitals with nuclear weapons, it being understood that the Europeans will be unable to retaliate without annihilating their Palestinian friends.

The revolution can only last so long.  They're running out of food, etc.  As someone with diabetes, I understand that the whole civil unrest thing is a self-defeating venture.

In Egypt, they are doing more harm than good.  Nothing is going to change.  Get serious.  1 corrupt politician or another.  Same difference.  However, their credit rating has already been lowered.  I think you can forget about foreign investment for a while.  Tourism revenue lost in the present -- not to mention potential future effects.

100+ people dead.  All for nothing.

New Orleans after Katrina.  LA after Rodney King.  Some people are just looking for an *excuse* to go crazy and do immoral things in the name of 'justice.'

Eventually they'll get some kind of support from U.N. peace-keeping troops or whatever, and they'll mop things up.

...and it will be 'business as usual.'

I understand you more than others around here - all I want for the next 30+ years of my life is peace and stability. Change through peaceful demonstrations is really what I prefer - for the reasons you mentioned. You're right, all the nutjobs do come out during times of chaos and the innocents/idealists bear the brunt of the suffering. 

BUT I don't think this revolution is for nothing. The people of Egypt have one goal - to get rid of their despot and his whole ruling clan. The deposing of bad kings have been a worthy human endeavour since kings were invented. It does appear that the crowd have no further clear ambitions than getting rid of Mubarak, and I think that's what scares the usual suspects in the region. There is a small chance that it can all go pear shaped afterwards, but I think Egypt will essentially stay the same, modern, Muslim democracy with a secular flavour that it pretended to be under Mubarak. Better, if only to get the tourist trade going again, hopefully soon.

My fear right now, in the next 48 hours, is a Gwangju moment. In 1980, 686 paratroopers from the ROK military went berserk and killed 1000-2000 pro-democracy protesters in the city of Gwangju in South Korea. This small number of hard-core government soldiers quelled an entire city by themselves against armed resistance. Since the regular Egyptian military have virtually given the go-ahead to the demonstrators tomorrow to carry the bodies of those who died to the presidential palace without interference, Mubarak might do anything to prevent it. All he needs is a small number of his presidential guards (Egypt boasts around 390,000 paramilitary personnel - outside the main armed forces) to go apeshit, and in the ensuing chaos demonstrators will attack the regular army soldiers, the paramilitaries will fire on everyone, and we end up with a bloodbath. I don't want to give Mubarak any ideas (I doubt he reads ZH), but if I was a homicidal madman bent on hanging on to my power, that's what I would do then blame it on an al queda cell. Sometimes I scare myself.

Hey Moslem Brotherhood.

 

Mubarak thinks he can wait you out.  He is hiding in the armed forces ministry building surrounded by a few hundred of his most dependable troops.

Simply occupy all the other ministry buildings, appoint key personnel quickly to fill all government positions, and get the bureaucrats back to work.

Announce a general amnesty and forgiveness of  the police and get them back out on the streets, with of course a unity government/moslem brotherhood representative in charge of the police building.

The army has said they will not fire on the citizens.  You can simply walk into all the other ministries except the armed forces ministry and start governing.

Ignore Mubarak.  He has a few hundred troops surrounding the ministry building.  It is more a prison now than a source of power.

 

get on with the business of governing.  Let the vice president know that all security and intelligence forces will be forgiven and a general amnesty announced for them also, but the vice president needs to cooperate with the new president, El Baradei.

Eventually Mubarak will look awfully ridiculous hiding in the armed forces ministry building.  Ignore him and get on with occupying all the other ministries and get the government and business running again.

Declare a general amnesty for anyone in Mubarak's party as long as they swear allegience to the new government.

After a few weeks Mubarak will realize that he has been left behind by events and is powerless.  All he controls are a few hundred troops.  Let him stay in the Armed Forces Ministry Building as long as he wants.  Ignore him, laugh at him, ridicule him, but get the country and bureaucracy running as fast as you can without him.

 

The people who are in those other ministries can't stop you.  Appoint your key management personnel quickly over all the bureaucratic departments.  Every place where there is already a mubarak party representative simply ignore him and start working.  Remind that bureaucrat or minister that he will receive a general amnesty and forgiveness if he cooperates with the unity government and gets back to work.

Tomorrow could be one of those historic events that redefines the geopolitics of the world for the next half century. I have been hearing rumors from ME-based websites that demonstrations in other regional countries are being planned to coincide with the "million-man-march" in Egypt. Libya, Jordan and Saudi Arabia being mentioned. Ultimately, nobody knows what is going to happen, but no matter what happens, I think not only is the ME region changed forever, but the influence of the US is changed as well. Blood money and expensive US-built tanks, helicopters and fighter jets may lose a very large market. Short heavy-iron defense contractors, Bitchez!

Doesn't seem to be very many tweets considering the size of the region, and a bunch of them keep repeating.

Egyptian Army statement today:

"The presence of the army in the streets is for your sake and to ensure your safety and well-being. The armed forces will not resort to use of force against our great people.

"Your armed forces, who are aware of the legitimacy of your demands and are keen to assume their responsibility in protecting the nation and the citizens, affirms that freedom of expression through peaceful means is guaranteed to everybody." the army statement said.

The army is arrayed in-force between the  rallying place of the protesters (independence Square) and the place where Mubarak is staying. If the protesters try to storm the palace, what the army does could determine what the outcome of this will be.

Google, Twitter team up for Egyptians to send tweets via phone By Cecilia Kang

As Egypt moved Monday to shut down its sole operating Internet service provider, Google and Twitter teamed up to create a service for people to send tweets from the nation through a phone call.

Over the weekend, a small group of engineers from the companies got together to create the service that allows anyone with access to voice service -- landline or mobile -- to leave a messsage that automatically gets transmitted into a tweet, according to the Google blog. People cut off from Internet and mobile services in Egypt could call +16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855. Tweets from the call would be sent with the hashtag: #egypt.

"Like many people we’ve been glued to the news unfolding in Egypt and thinking of what we could do to help people on the ground," wrote Ujjwal Singh, cofounder of Google company SayNow and AbdelKarim Mardini, a Google product manager for Middle East & North Africa.

"We hope that this will go some way to helping people in Egypt stay connected at this very difficult time. Our thoughts are with everyone there," they wrote.

The service comes as Egypt's ministry of information told CNN Monday evening it has shut down Noor the remaining ADSL service, according to CNN. Noor had appeared to be offering Internet connections to a limited number of institutions within Cairo, global network experts said.

The move effectively cut off any communications in the nation to the Internet ahead of planned protests Monday. The Egyptian government also said it had cut off all mobile services Monday ahead of the protests.
