The Stream recently covered the first "tweet nadwa" (or tweet symposium), a discussion on the future of Egypt held both online and in person, but based on the rules of Twitter conversation. Online, questions were limited to 140 characters. In person, responses were limited to 140 seconds. The first tweet nadwa focused on the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt's future. The second tweet nadwa was held on June 21st and looked at the origins of the country's revolution to make sure its motivations are not forgotten.
