Social Media banned in Egypt

Continuing unrest against the Hoshni Mubarak had led to the authorities banning facebook in Egypt. Access to twitter is also getting difficult from Egypt. It looks like social media has been playing a major role in the upraising. However it is interesting to see that Government does not seem to agree that they have banned social media. The traffic in twitter and face book have gone down considerably in the last two weeks. A Blackberry official confirmed that their internet services have been affected.
