The tweeters likened what the Saudi platforms had done to the performance of the Egyptian regime’s arms and battalions, in distorting the singer’s name and her concert, which was supervised by the “My Ticket” company, owned by the Egyptian General Intelligence, and gave the Egyptians the impression of a victory over the Sheikh family, who was reported to have liquidated all his works in Egypt, coinciding with Maher’s return and the announcement of her concert in the city of El Alamein in northern Egypt.
And support for the hypothesis of controversy between the Al-Sheikh family and Sisi’s apparatus, its use since the days of his electronic battalions, and the launch of a hashtag that was imposed on the top of the list of the most frequently traded in the name of #intelligence_blackmail_Turkish, supported by dozens of newly created Saudi accounts.
