Please help! Go through @AnonymousinIran's followers and ask them not to follow/retweet. They are collecting IP addresses in their links!

StopAhmadiNews: Please read the 3:47pm update: http://bit.ly/171JFU #gr88 #iranelection

Just wondering if that's from today/yesterday. Unsourced.

Aww, my hashtag monitoring tab exploded :(

"Over capacity. Try again later."

Then again, I'm glad so many people are getting involved!

Iran is truly a country that has been consistently misrepresented by the majority of American media as "the country of Ahmadinejad", "radical", "terrorist", "evil"... while I knew that the common people of Iran were really not all too like that, this unfolding story has opened even my eyes to how similar Iran and America really are underneath the layers of religion and leadership that cause friction...

Thank you for helping to spread the word that Iran is not to be defined by broad brushstrokes, but by the detail any sovereign nation deserves... this story can be seen as a result of Iran's relative "pariah"-ness among many "Western" countries for so long (longer than I have been alive).

lol I apologize in advance for anyone from here who may be following me on twitter. I'm replying to every single one of anonymousiniran's followers, so I'm probably clogging up your feeds.
one_hoopy_frood 17th-Jun-2009 04:10 pm (UTC)
If you reply to them directly, your followers won't see it, just them.

12:00 PM ET -- Seriously? GOP Rep. Pete Hoekstra, ranking Republican on the intelligence committee, tweets: "Iranian twitter activity similar to what we did in House last year when Republicans were shut down in the House." From reader John.

Hey, I just woke up. I went to bed around...page 29 or so. I heard that twitter got blocked but they were getting around it still. What's the latest word on everything?
one_hoopy_frood 17th-Jun-2009 04:29 pm (UTC)
There was another huge, peaceful march of around 500,000 people. I think that was the only big event. It was a lot of little stuff again. Some of the police/army are wearing green bands, refusing orders, but they still have to worry about Basiij. The Iranian soccer team wore green wristbands for the first half of their game before they were told to take them off half way through as per FIFA rules. The fans had awesome signs like "Death to the Dictator"

Anyone heard anything else about this?
keeperofthekeys 17th-Jun-2009 04:27 pm (UTC)

I heard of possible cleric meetings, though.
one_hoopy_frood 17th-Jun-2009 04:22 pm (UTC)

Someone sent me this after asking them to unfollow AnonymousInIran. I asked @FindtheRats what they thought. I don't really know anymore. Stupid freaking twitter. The more people in on it, the worse it gets.
ariesangel404 17th-Jun-2009 04:25 pm (UTC)
I agree. The more everyone is on Twitter, the harder it is to keep up with what information is true or not.
