Tweets early Tuesday from on the ground in Egypt:

Al Jazeera correspondent Dan Nolan:

A BIG thank u from me, @bundymoth & rest of jazeera staff arrested yest for all ur kind msg's of concern & requests for our release.

10.30am crowds in Tahrir Sq already the size they were at peak last nite! Imagine how big in few hours?!?! Could be an historic day 4 #Egypt

CNN correspondent Ben Wedeman:

Going out shortly, tweets will at best be via CNN HQ if at all. Cell phone system still working. Stomach knotted. #Egypt #Jan25

ABC's Lara Setrakian:

There are rampant rumors/fears that plainclothes police will be in the crowds at Tahrir Square to crack down. We'll be looking out. #Jan25
