24. You're very welcome

I just finished washing up after dinner and the tweets are more of the same. More fighting. More tear gas. More beatings including some young women whose faces are black and blue now. More anger that the pro-Morsi faction was somehow well-armed going into this. I don't have a good feeling about this. I'm going to stop and go to bed, hoping things don't escalate any more than they already have.

You've got to be kidding. This is a fantastic resource, the kind of thread this site should exist to host, and you're the one who's made it. Apologize?! We should bow down to you. I am incredibly appreciative and I'm not the only one.

25. Thanks Jack. I wish I could capture the Arabic tweets too

I'm going to sleep now and hopefully things will be clearer tomorrow. I almost said calm but realized I don't want calm, I want them to get rid of those thugs and control their revolution independently from the political calculations of outsiders. Thank you so much
