Current Trends

Using a Twitter tracking site I looked to see what major US cities were Tweeting specifically about the Egyptian uprising in the last day or so.

LA, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Houston, Tweeted about “Mubarak”

NYC Tweeted about “Egyptian”

Seattle Tweeted about both “Mubarak” and “Egyptian”

Atlanta, and Miami Tweeted about everything but Egypt.

But good old Washington DC Tweeted about “brotherhood” and “Egyptian” a lot. Does this show our leaders Islamaphobia?
