Also, cyber activists are urging each other via tweets to help clean up Cairo's Tahrir Square, starting Saturday.

"We need to clean the garbage and leave the memorial parts... not to leave unclean things after us." tweeted Mo Elnadi.

"It is our duty," tweeted Google staffer and protest leader Wael Ghonim.
