Egyptian police seek to monitor protests on social media

Unfortunately, Egypt is becoming a great example of what governments can do to exercise control over the Internet. At the time, the now former president Hosni Mubarak ordered to ban access to Facebook and Twitter, which later went as far as the blocking of Internet access.

Now we know how the story ended: Mubarak was overthrown and a new government emerged that, in theory, would give new freedoms to citizens. However, The Guardian reports that a document has revealed the intention of the police in that country to monitor content disseminated on social networks, in order to identify signs of protest and other content contrary to the law.
