Did @ProtesterHelp ever give the names of the "compromised" Twitter users?
lindra 17th-Jun-2009 02:24 am (UTC)
No. But there are lists being compiled -- check a couple pages back?

Go on Twitter, bb. There's so much going on... ;_;

One happening: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/iran/story/70155.html. Were u here for that new post made in the comnm? It's a different article, I think, but the subject's the same.

you know what's sad.. i kinda don't give a fuck about north korea and im pissed at CNN for having more coverage on them.
homasse 17th-Jun-2009 02:25 am (UTC)
CNN has seriously failed here. And it's all the more spectacular for their masturbatory "WE were ALL OVER Tiananmen Square twenty years ago! Yeah, CNN!" stuff when the 20th anniversary came.

nytimes.com posted a link to a very popular and reliable Iranian twitter....

is anyone else completely lost? i've been trying to catch up for hours but it's just not happening for me.
saigonostalker 17th-Jun-2009 02:30 am (UTC)
I've been running around on the internet since 5am this morning, but I'm too exhausted to post any kind of coherent summary.

Anyone else up for it?
mercaque 17th-Jun-2009 02:30 am (UTC)
I got all excited, turned to CNN, and had Anderson Cooper uttering the phrase "massive personal garden of pot"

Oh Anderson.
phookie 17th-Jun-2009 02:31 am (UTC)
I know, I was expecting more from Anderson (I was terribly moved by his Katrina coverage) but you're covering pot now?! Come on now, boo! I expect more from you!! :'(

One woman went up to the special forces men, who normally are very brutal with Mr Mousavi's supporters, and said 'can you protect us from the Basij?' He said 'with God's help'.

tears from my eyes

is anyone going to call the times to tell those two morons who released the twitter names on nytimes to take down their article? i can't figure out where to e-mail them..
doublekill 17th-Jun-2009 02:33 am (UTC)

moldycelery 17th-Jun-2009 02:37 am (UTC)
Well, this has finally convinced me to get a Twitter. On the other hand, now I can keep up with all the twits on #iranelection.

-- "Nate808s: امشب و هر شب ساعت 12 الی 10:30 شب بانگ الله اکبر از بالای پشت بام ها Tonight 10:30-12, "Alaho Akbar" from rooftops. #IranElection"

Can someone translate that?

OMFG.

Fuck yes!
saigonostalker 17th-Jun-2009 02:42 am (UTC)
It's been an unforgettable ride, my friends, but I'm exhausted and it's time for bed.

I'll see you all in the morning, and hopefully I'll wake to something other than bad news.

Doing menial things like washing dishes, eating dinner, and bathing seem so... menial.

Anyway, I wonder what these guys are doing in response to all of the talk of war and killing on their site:

southern_shrimp 17th-Jun-2009 02:45 am (UTC)
They're probably the ones that are feeling the sickest. With all the stuff they've read...
