Twitter suspends account of group combating sexual assault in Egyptian protests

As Twitchy reported earlier today, Egyptians are taking steps to address the misogynistic violence in Tahrir Square and are spreading the word via social media. A group of women created a special Twitter account, @TahrirBodyguard, to help combat sexual attacks on female protesters.

The account has now been inexplicably, repeatedly suspended by Twitter, placing the lives of Egyptian women at risk.

The group has set up a back-up account, @TahrirBGBackUp:

Since Twitter keeps suspending @TahrirBodyguard for now reason, this is our back-up account. We won’t give up on protecting women in #Tahrir & its surroundings!
