Egyptian Man Tired Of Egypt Tweets

The people of Egypt celebrated a victory last Friday, when they were able to force the resignation of the unpopular former president Hosni Mubarak. Social media and Twitter specifically were largely credited with aiding and fueling the revolution, however it seems some people have grown tired of the revolution tweets.

Ali Ali Ali, a local Egyptian man, has grown tired with the vast amount of tweets about Egypt and feels like Twitter is dead for him now. "I follow Twitter for the comedians and the funny celebrity death stories, but now everything is Egypt, Egypt, Egypt." said Ali [Ali Ali]. "I'm not against the revolution but I'm fed up of my 'Yo Momma Joke' tweets being flooded out."

Ali Ali Ali's pleas, however, have fallen on deaf ears as international social media activists have pushed on with tweeting their ever-changing emotions every five minutes. Jay Hippy, one of the self proclaimed Egypt afficianados, said from his comfortable home in Sandton, " We are just trying to show our support and empathy for our brave brothers and sisters in Egypt", who then went on to tweet, "It is raining in Egypt, today we are all getting rained on #jan25".

Some people however don't seem to bothered either way by the Egypt tweets. Deposed president, Hosni Mubarak, said, "I don't get any of those tweets, I don't get any of those tweets". On closer inspection it appears as Mubarak didn't receive the tweets due to the fact he follows just one person, Lady Gaga, and has one tweet which reads "Can't read my, can't read my pokerface #jan25".
