I’ve included a few others in this list:
I am following developments through Globe Post. Excellent summaries.

s’il vous plait précisez nous pour les twitter ceux qui twittent en fraicais mers
I would recommend using Google Translate: http://translate.google.com
live feed of twitter #jan25 without a twitter account:
Great, added the feed, thank you
Please encourage all US citizens to call the White House comment line and request that the US make a strong stand in support of the protestors 202 456 1111. Also, write email to your representatives. Feel free to use the letter (in part or full) I wrote to my congressman and posted on my blog http://littleparticulars.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/dear-congressman/
BBC are collating tweets, AP, Reuters etc on live feed. erring on the side of caution.
also follow @weddady on Twitter. Following him, along with @alaa and Mona, you’ll get just about everything you need.
Tech explanation of how the Internet went down: http://cpj.org/internet/2011/01/watching-egypt-disappear-from-the-internet.php by @danny_at_cpj (follow him for continued tech updates; he works with @ioerror).
For attacks on press: http://cpj.org.
Thanks, added @weddady
The website of the Brotherhood is also a good source to find out what’s going on:
They are far deeper connected in distant cities than most media.
Thanks very much

Here’s a list I’ve created of 37 people who are still managing to tweet from Egypt: http://bit.ly/hCzkUu
Thanks Jacob, will add
http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en add that to your list
Oh, and also here’s some more twitter streams.
@HosniMobarak – for an amusing parody break.
@justimage – another journalist (Matthew Cassell of electronicintifada.net) tweeting from Cairo.
@avinunu – Abunimah, of electronicintifada.net as well — though not tweeting live from Cairo, is RTing several people who are and is a good gateway to lots of news articles and analyses.
Following on News Arabica http://www.newarabica.com. Great site!! Looks like a wide variety of aggregated/curated sources

Facebook Groups in English: Operation Egypt, Anonymous News Network, Vodafone Global Boycot And Protest, and http://www.facebook.com/aljazeera if you can’t just watch their live stream in the background at http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/
I’d also recommend leaving messages and links to what you find at “The White House” on Facebook. Consider it a virtual sit-in…especially for people who don’t have an Egyptian Embassy nearby to protest at. You can “Like” Joe Biden briefly to leave him a pointed message, but then please un-like him…he’s too much of a tool.
Site of an anonymous blogger from inside Egypt, who is credited with being a driving force in the protests.
