Event Details

Join openDemocracy for a film screening of Tweets from Tahrir followed by Q&A session with Director Adib Nessim.
 
In 2011 Cairo's "Twitterati" tweeted their revolution for 18 days in and around Tahrir Square. Young, urbane and highly motivated, their tweets revealed the truth of the scale of the uprising which Egypt's state media sought to hide. It gave a street-level minute-by-minute account of the bravery and persistence of the Egyptian people which resulted in the downfall of a dictator.
 
A year later Al Jazeera talks to some of those who posted on twitter to hear in more than 140 characters what they thought then, and what they feel now about developments since the heady days of February 2011.
 
The film is based on a book by Alex Nunns and Nadia Idle of the same name and published by OR books. For more information on the book see here
