Mubarak may resign tonight

Posted on: February 10, 2011

I got the message out on Twitter, but it must be being tweeted over and over by the millions now.

I was looking at Drudge and the screen changed with the headline, ‘Mubarak to step aside’.  I can’t tweet from my location in the wilds of Northern Alberta, Canada, but I needed to be among the first to get that story out. I can hit ‘retweet’ and did exactly that.

I have been following  this story from day one, busy following 200 tweeters (that I can’t read from here, unfortunately) many on the ground in Egypt and in Tahrir, tweeting descriptions of what I see on Al Jazeera and other news feeds, and retweeting important news I see.

Anyway. When I get back to a place where I can read tweets, I’ll be happy. Meanwhile, I hope those tweets of mine got though. They’ll be well received.
