# 5:30est: Haven't heard news in 15 minutes. From anyone, not even rumors.

I'm even more nervous now.

Oh God. Maybe they've all just put their phones away for the hour to find a new place to hide? I'm just going to stick with that :(

The sun kind of looks like an orange I've had in a baggy for a month or so now.

Apparently DDOSing slows all Iranian internet traffic, which is dangerous.
They mentioned this twice on CNN and once here>>http://emsenn.com/iran.php

Don't know if there is any truth to it, just seems to make sense.

emsenn.com is the same as protesterhelp and he tweeted that we should all do it just for the hour that twitter is down.
lavenderfrost Guys, my Mom just called me to talk about politics.16th-Jun-2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
Mom: Hey, did you hear what's going on in Iran? Their election was rigged and they're rioting in the streets! Ahmadinejad kicked out the media! They're communicating on their phones or something! Oh, and Sarah Palin's feuding with David Letterman!
Me: *just waking up from the first decent sleep I've had in 36 hours of #iranelection/following Iran on ONTDP* O RLY?? Watching CNN, are we?
Mom: And MSNBC. I'm trying to keep current.
Me: ...*facepalm*

At least she's trying! My mom simply cites The View in any attempts at discussion.

D: I know. I need news. Sounds like it's been total radio-silence since 15 minutes into the downtime?

Please dear God, don't let anything happen while Twitter is offline. D:

I'm glad I had work related things to do while twitter is down. I would be going crazy. Hopefully by the time I've caught my bus home and gotten my computer booted up, it's back up...

Thank you person who gave me image code!

When is twitter back up? Just came home and I've forgotten to check when it was down and stuff :( Not having twitter to keep track is... making me nervous :(

Tv2News is talking about this stuff again! :D - and, while Tv2News normally just repeat their own shit for hours and hours and hours, they are actually talking about new stuff now. Also, Norwegian reporter Gry Winther is Tehran..?

Not available in the US (sadface). BBCWNA will probably be showing it at 7pm, then.
