Conan also made a Iran/twitter joke.
But he didn't give out any twitter usernames, yay.

I'm not caring for his Iranian jokes tho...

What is he saying? I was watching Colbert. -.-

Aw, I'm losing faith in my favorite tv personalities.

The guy on Colbert is enlightening, all things considered.

So I just tried to get a bunch of the people on the forum I've frequented for 3 years to get riled up about this, and...not one response. I know they're all teenage girls, but damnit, I'm one too, and I care. My generation disappoints me sometimes.

I have a question, because I have no idea how twitter works... how does releasing people's names put them in danger? Just curious.
carverhawke 17th-Jun-2009 03:44 am (UTC)
Apparently they have government people posing as Iranian protesters and Twitter is under major surveillance, government is trying to jam the site. They are trolling, making false rumors... etc.

-- "DanMohad: They've got Mohammad Ali Abtahi #iranelection #iranians #gr88 #iran9"

I'm not sure who Abtahi is, but I assume this is not good.

-- "arrows_for_pens: 150 proferssors of Tehran university have resigned and are trying to do the funeral ceremony for 5 students killed #iranelection #gr88"

oh. :(

-- "GracieAllenFan: RT:NYtimes NO LONGER publishg senstive twitr names. NYTimes 6-16"we will refrain from identifying individual fees from now on" #iranElection"

OKAY! Call CTV in Canada ((416) 384-5000) and Comedy Central so they don't replay it.

Can someone get the Comedy Central phone number? It sends me directly to the Canadian website.

"CNN website is now blocked in Iran #iranelection"

lol whatever, they're useless anyways.

How are the Iranians ever going to know about cheeseburgers in a can now?
_starsinmyeyes_ 17th-Jun-2009 03:52 am (UTC)
Are there any US channels covering this right now? I keep flipping around.
doublekill 17th-Jun-2009 03:55 am (UTC)
They keep going back and forth between other (pointless) stories. Stick to BBC if you have it.

I'm LMAO at people now figuring out that Colbert is fail! I've know that for so long, and yet I was made fun of for it!
flowerings 17th-Jun-2009 03:58 am (UTC)
lol, no. One mess up doesn't equal a lifetime of fuck ups like your idols.

I would like Rachel Maddow to be my best friend. I could watch her show all day, not even kidding.
