Twitter And Facebook Are blocked Again !! "Updated"

I can’t open twitter directly nor the Facebook again from TE Data network , other internet users are reporting the same using different ISP.
Blackberry users are reporting as well that the Blackberry Messenger “BBM” is currently blocked in Egypt according to security reasons.
Update : 

  • News that twitter and Facebook are back "highly doubtful as I can't get access to them directly. 
  • SMS service is completely down in Egypt , SMS is currently dead in all networks 
  • There is unconfirmed news that BBM is back , I am not sure yet 
  • Strong rumor that ISPs in Egypt got orders that to pull the plug on internet all day long tomorrow insh Allah.


  1. Also, no FB, no Twitter and not even with my iPhone 3G. Also, rumors of demos here in my neighborhood tomorrow.

  2. Any proxy can be used...just google "proxy"

    I personally prefer

  4. I just accessed Twitter via a search on Tweetdeck and through advice on Twitter was able to get onto FB (

  5. In today's Rosa Al-Youssef column, Mohamed El Naschie again calls for Egypt to censor the Internet.

  6. I'm an American, born and bred, and was searching for a place to post a comment of encouragement to the Egyptian People in this hour of what I hope is true freedom and change.
    Because of our Constitution, we have never seen dictatorship. Most know, we all vote every 4 years for a new President, and he can only serve 2 terms. There is no exception. I know this makes the U.S. look fickle sometimes, always seeming to change it's mind, or who our government supports, but it's just democracy, and revolving leadership. The average, everyday American is just like everyone else in the world. We work, we love, we pray, we do our best... just like you.
    I know many join me in giving you our prayers and concern, and wish the best for you. I know no one in Egypt, but you are my friends, and brothers and sisters on this rock in space. We need to look out for each other. I am my brother's keeper.

  7. Do you think there is any chance Mubarak will step down? If President Obama were to demand that he do so, would he pay any attention? Not that I expect that to happen, but it might be possible to put a lot of pressure on Obama. After all, he did just state USA "supports the democratic aspirations of all people." He was referring to the people of Tunisia, but the repression of dissent in Egypt is embarrassing him, at least enough to hint that aid to Egypt might be cut off.

  8. I salut my Egyptian brothers and sisters for your glorious protest against the terrible MOUBARAK dictatur of your country, I am an old Algerian partisan (Moujahid)the 25 January suppose to be my birthday. I hope you will use in curfew time and at done the YOUYOU arabe, in arabic (ZAGHARIT). MAY ALLAH BE WITH YOU AND GIVE YOU VICTORY...........Tewfik

  10. From America. . .can't say I support or agree with everything on your blog, but I am behind the will of the Egyptian people. I contacted my congressmen and told them I wanted the U.S. to stand down. It's the best I can do. Good luck to you! I hope you get what you want--an authentically elected Egyptian government--without too much bloodshed.

  11. Social networking sites like Facebook allow people to share information and create 'interest groups'. They should be more aware of their use. facebook blocked
