A pro-democracy activist and opponent of Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood turned himself in to the prosecutor's office for questioning on Tuesday, a day after an order for his arrest.
Alaa Abdel Fattah was "temporarily released" a few hours later, a judicial source said.
In a tweet sent during his questioning, the young man said he refused "to answer questions because the prosecutor general is not impartial" and mocked the case against him.
The investigation against him had been prompted by a tweet he had received rather than sent himself, Abdel Fattah said.
