Both countries have been blocking the entire internet over the last few days and clients working on Shoutitout, Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. Blackberry has also been blocked in Egypt we aren’t sure about Syria. The Twitterverse has all but disapeared from Egypt as you can see in this chart:

The Daily show has also gone to social media to talk about this event as it unfolds. We will keep you updated in different posts.
