Aside from the obvious fact that Twitter has one of the biggest fan bases, and users, in the Middle East, there are some times when you see all these people take to their Twitter account to celebrate something, or in most cases, blow off some steam!
See the thing is, I really do have an obsession when it comes to Hollywood news. There is nothing that certainly goes by that I wouldn’t know about (All thanks to Twitter’s notifications whenever someone I choose posts something!). So among the accounts that I follow are celebrity news accounts that post news by the second (no exaggeration there!) so you can imagine how my phone was like when Ramy Youssef won himself a Golden Globe!
In case you’ve been living under a rock; Egyptian Actor Ramy Youssef (@ramy) won his first Golden Globe this year for best actor in a comedy series, Ramy. The show, in which Youssef plays the title character, tells the story of a millennial Muslim who is a second-generation American born to immigrant parents in the United States. As we personally do have some concerns with the show, we cannot deny that it’s quite an accomplishment!
According to a press release by Twitter; Following Ramy’s win, more than 30,000 Tweets were shared on Twitter globally. @ramy also humorously tweeted that his sister was not impressed with his win, which received more than 50,000 Likes:

The strange part of all of this, maybe not so strange to some, that Egypt was the second highest country to tweet about the Egyptian/American actor … following the US! Yeah, Yeah it makes sense a bit … but wouldn’t the dude count as “Fakhr Al-Arab” too?
