Okay, I really got to go to bed now. It's 3 am here and got work to do tomorrow - 9 hours D: Will try to twit before work and, of course, when I get home again.

Keep up the good work, ONTD_P! I love you all ♥ It's great someone cares! Stay awesome, guys!

See you later, alligator.

And just one more reason for me to intensely dislike Keith Olbermann, Sarah Palin beats out anything resembling real news for the top story on Countdown. Ugh.

"RT Iran: Moves being made to force Generals to support Ahmadinejad, I am told they will not give the order to shoot"

.... whoa!

What is a proxy?
lindra 17th-Jun-2009 01:12 am (UTC)
a middleman. like, people don't go directly from their mobiles/whatever to twitter, so they send their stuff to someone in the middle which has access to twitter. so instead of post --> twitter it's post --> proxy --> twitter. and proxies are vulnerable for that reason -- they're the weak link in the chain.

Oy it's hard cutting up important messages for twitter.

Fucking Twitter n00bs are going to get people killed! Everytime a Westerner tweets irresponsibly, another Iranian dissident dies.

Slightly diff. subject: I've talked to my bf about all thats going on and he keeps telling me to calm down because "there is nothing to do about it."

UGGGGGGGG. If this was happening in the U.S. I bet a lot more people would be getting upset about this too. Along with that, how can I not listen to the Twitter-ers when they are risking their lives to tell us? That makes their deaths have no meaning if no one cared.
ariesangel404 17th-Jun-2009 01:30 am (UTC)
Ugh. I know right? People are so uncaring sometimes. I got my fiance asking for updates on the hour though heh.

It was yellowish green outside just a few minutes ago, haze and all. Looks like the entirety of my town is showing support.
saramiskismet 17th-Jun-2009 01:20 am (UTC)
That happened in my town last week. Freaked us all out. It was due to storm clouds and the angle of the setting sun and... right about this time, actually... what part of world/country are you in?

Maddow just brought up the "Bomb Iran" song by McCain in a totally deadpan lulz moment. I heart her.
lindra 17th-Jun-2009 01:20 am (UTC)
okay, I don't know about this:

"RT from Iran: ppl are asked to keep their cells off when protesting - their number can be identified by intelligence ministry."

but I also keep seeing that Montazeri has withdrawn support from Khamenei -- isn't that the same cleric who went back to supporting him again earlier today?
cookie_nut 17th-Jun-2009 01:34 am (UTC)
IDK, I thought that was another cleric. I have yet to hear this retracted. I know multiple clerics and Ayatollahs have come forward so far.
