I opened a Twitter account a while back, and have never used it. A friend sent me some Twitter links, of people sending updates from inside Iran. I now find Twitter useful. Instead of the typical "I'm trimming my toenails" I am finding topical, up to the minute information.

I don't want this to turn political, but I find the situation in Iran fascinating.

For those interested, I am following..

This is from the Washington Post. Twitter realizes how important it is to stay online during working hours in Iran.

Quote:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Social networking service Twitter delayed a planned upgrade to avoid cutting daytime service to Iranians who have been using it to coordinate protests against a disputed presidential election.

Iran's top legislative body on Tuesday ruled out annulling the disputed presidential poll that has prompted the biggest street protests since the 1979 Islamic revolution but said it was prepared for a partial recount.

Websites such as Twitter and Facebook have become a focal point for young, urban Iranians opposed to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who defeated Mirhossein Mousavi in Friday's election and whose government controls the state media.

Twitter Inc said in a blog post on its site a network upgrade had been planned for Monday night in the United States, which would have cut daytime service in Iran on Tuesday.

"... Our network partners at NTT America recognize the role Twitter is currently playing as an important communication tool in Iran," the blog post said. NTT America is a subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation of Japan

The hourlong maintenance was moved to 5 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, corresponding to 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday in Iran.

Twitter is a website that allows users to post messages of 140 characters or less, known as "tweets," that can be seen by other users who choose to follow them. Many users post messages from smart phones allowing information to spread rapidly.

I agree and have been watching things unfold. Sad

Loads of videos are also being posted on youtube.

It is interesting to see how different governments are trying to crack down on these types of systems and the old adage of "The pen is mightier than the sword" is alive and well!

It got nasty today. Our media just isn't able to show what's going on over there though. Those videos are just about the only link that the protestors have with the outside world.
Watching some of the Western media, it's almost as if they're mouthpieces for the Iranian regime. For example, right now France24 is reporting that the security forces are firing into the air to avoid confrontation. It's easy to find videos which totally contradict this statement though. And they're not the only ones, CNN and the BBC have reported a bombing at Khomeni's mausoleum, although this seems to be propaganda started by the regime to tar the protestors as terrorists.
Thank God for the internet.

Twitter #iranelection is linking a video of a teenage girl shot by a militia. Very graphic, very powerful and very disturbing, in the coming days it is probably going to become the iconic footage of the uprising and will be used as a historical reminder as to just what the Iranian regime is capable of.
