Has anyone seen this? Is the translation correct?

“Two screenshots Iranian state-run television illustrating the apparent decrease in votes for candidate Mohsen Rezaee over a four hour period. The upper picture shows Rezaee with 633,048 votes at 09:47; the lower shows the same candidate with 587,913 votes at 13:53 later that day, a decrease of 45,135.”

They are calling it the Twitter Revolution. LOL. I cannot believe that this is what it will possibly be referred to in future history books.

Guys, I've been e-mail-discussing this issue with one of my professors and she's pretty convinced that Ahmadinejad won the election through proper votes, fraud and all. (She admits there's fraud, but not a real sense of government conspiracy, IDK.) Any articles you suggest I could link her to in order to convince her that the Iranian people DNW Ahmadinejad as leader? (You'd think the protest would be enough evidence for her.)

I wish I could find the articles but I've seen plenty of Iranians say that they do not want Ahmadinejad as their president nor do they consider him their leader.

FindTheRatsA new active hashtag the Iran trolls are using is #tcot ... #iranelection #gr88

moar #iranelection:

-- "mehdi115: Its dawn. Again everything on a knife edge. Stick to the plan, safe in numbers, no violence, and most important be alert. #iranelection"

-- "thenyeguy: RT: multiple layers of clothes help protection against beating, and cab be torn to cover wounds/faces #iranelection #gr88"

I hate that this advice is needed.


-- "pepe_corrs: PLS NOTE! RT @outpost54 FROM IRAN: New ports people, please don't run NEW proxies on 80/81/8080/9090/3128, maybe blocked #Iran #iranelection"

Am looking into it, but better safe than sorry.
