In an apparent effort to stem the outside world from witnessing the huge protests currently taking place in Egypt, and presumably to keep people there from communicating with each other, the government has banned Twitter use for the hashtag #Jan25.
Egyptian authorities went into blocking spree, Egyptian users told ArabCrunch that Twitter is blocked where the hashtage #jan25 is being used to update users about the revolution in Egypt against government dictatorship and corruption. VodaFone Egypt Twitter account confirms this with this tweet.
