People in Iran tweeting about the conflict from proxy servers that haven't been blocked. Chilling and horribly enlightening.

@persiankiwi if anyone is interesting in following.

This is doing the rounds on the various twitters

Change your twitter settings to say you are in the Tehran timezone, and change your location to Tehran.

Iranian censors are filtering by these settings to find dissidents, by doing this you can make things a bit more difficult for them

Twitter is the root of all evil but yet I still use the damn thing. What a rip. lol. In any case I only follow friends and family - and the occasional business contact.

its pointless unless you give a shit about what stephen fry/jonathon ross had for breakfast for the average person.

if you need to know things job related and have a lot of people related to your job who you are following and its the easiest way to see what they have to say then it may be useful

i still don't see the point though, can you actually communicate with specific people??

I thought loads of cool people would be on this, but I can't find anyone. No Will Arnett, no Spike Jonze, no Gus Van Sant. I don't like Twitter.
