As Egyptian Copts celebrate Orthodox Christmas, I herewith compile a thread on my personal experience regarding  how the treatment of Copts  has changed in Egypt.

    Hi there, Nervana. I appreciated your take on the Cathedral opening and especially on the 60 Minutes interview with el Sisi. I think you have a fundamental understanding of what’s going on in Egypt that many people could gain insight from. Truthfully, I think your point of view is rather illuminating. Unfortunately I think that your voice (at least on twitter) may get lost in the shuffle. I humbly suggest that it might be prudent of you to engage a little more deeply on twitter by way of replying to the most popular tweets regarding CBS erroneous reporting on the Muslim Brotherhood with a link to either your twitter thread or even this blogpost. Please take this suggestion in the spirit it’s given.

      Many thanks for your kind feedback. In addition to tagging CBS and 60 minutes on every reply, I engaged with other “popular” tweets, but only got attacked and framed as “pro-coup”. Sadly the Islamists have brain washed many liberal pundits and reporters.

        Thank you for your reply. Might I suggest finding other liberal pundits with larger followings to retweet as a potential strategy? I say this because by leveraging their audience for your message you might find some inroads you didn’t know were their. This is just my American-centric point of view, mind you. Even though I know your RT aren’t endorsements, retweeting ideological comrades like Yasmine Mohammed, Melissa Chen, or even Sarah Haider might result in some reciprocity that exposes you to a larger audience. Perhaps something to consider, perhaps something you’ve already done to some extent. Don’t want to take up too much of your time with my thoughts, but I enjoy your perspective and hope it gains larger dissemination.
