Twitter is blocked here now!

Ok, so because of the demonstrations here in Egypt, apparently the government owned service provider, TEData, decided to fucken block twitter!
Has Ammar 404 has left Tunisia after the flee of Ben Ali and decided to spend the rest of his life here in Egypt.
Seems that they are blocking its IP address, using a simple ACL. And not blocking it's url using a Web Filtering services on their Cache Servers, as I tried to login via "https://" and it failed too. And normally, many WF solutions miss the encrypted SSL traffic. Still not sure, but just guessing.
