I called that CNN number and the guy hung up on me once I said I was calling for them to stop showing twitter names. Fuck a bunch of CNN. We are fucking done professionally.

The way they're acting is atrocious.

Fuck you CNN! Ugh..

I'm so behind! D:
Brb, checking out all the links and reading all the comments now.
dayadhvam_triad 16th-Jun-2009 06:38 pm (UTC)
fuck, I just called CNN, started off with, "I'm calling with regards to your coverage of the Iranian election--" and the guy just transferred me to an automated message. Bastards!
ostia 16th-Jun-2009 06:40 pm (UTC)
Exactly the same here. When I called back I had to spit it out real fast "Stop showing the Twitter usernames!" and I'm not even sure he was listening.

Hi! If anyone is following this on twitter and I haven't added you already, can I add? I know a couple people added me...but I have no idea who you are. :B

I am nut_cookie on Twitter. :)

/b/ has jumped on this?

I'm watching CNN and they mentioned Twitter and its role in these events without bringing up the twitter names. So hopefully they're actually learning from all the phone calls.
homasse 16th-Jun-2009 06:42 pm (UTC)
Phone calls, messages on Twitter, e-mails; I'm sure they got on the Clue Bus at one of these stops.

Maybe we could go through their site. They have reporters who actively check messages/comments, yeah?

persiankiwi confirmed - tomorrow Haft Teer Sq at 4pm pro mousavi\freedom - carry flowers for baseej - no confrontation - #Iranelection half a minute ago from mobile web

I hope this goes well for them. I want to meet persiankiwi irl and give him/her a huge hug. I hope people like her and Change_for_Iran and ProtesterHelp are ~outed after this is over so we can all build a huge statue of them or something.

I'm so worried for NextRevolution (who seems to be eternally on the run), persiankiwi, and Change_for_Iran. And I love ProtesterHelp. I hope they're all okay, and I hope I can give them all a big hug some day, too.

@slbbw RT multiple sources: "140 characters is a novel when you're being shot at." #iranelection (via @karlynjane)

Jesus fucking Christ.

Oh God that's so sobering to think about.
one_hoopy_frood 16th-Jun-2009 06:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
mercaque A moment of curiosity...16th-Jun-2009 06:48 pm (UTC)
Someday I would really like to know how many e-mails/calls CNN and Twitter have received. It's so weird to talk to people IRL who don't know/don't care what's going on, versus the passionate online activism that's sprung up.

I have to go make my class schedule at 1:00. :/
