In the light of its recent social unrest, the Egyptian government has taken extreme measures in restricting the flow of information within & out of the country. Citizens are now concerned that the government will take the next step & seize control of private data stored in the databases of social media services in order to assist them in organising the response to the opposition.
"Governments should possess emergency powers to take control of databases that store personal & private information."
