#Egypt Twitterati #UnfollowedGhonimBecause

One-time January 25 hero @Ghonim has since proven a polarizing and controversial figure among Egyptians. On May 18, pent-up frustration gave birth to a new hashtag: #UnfollowedGhonimBecause. Please feel free to edit for completeness. The iconic "crying" interview that made Ghonim an instant symbol of the revolution: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UWmooyfVQM&feature=related

It all began with a parody account:
Ghonim With Mental Stability @GhonimWithBalls

How about this: Unfollow @Ghonim, then fire a tweet with #UnfollowedGhonimBecause. Let your voice be heard.
