Egypt

Egypt political leaders took to Twitter after the popular uprising that swept the country which was in part fueled by social media and the ousting of President Morsi also played out live on the government’s Twitter handles. Interestingly Egyptian leaders don’t follow other Twitter users, using Twitter mainly as a broadcasting tool.
