URGENT: Use Twitter to help Iranian protestors.
Americans supporting Iranian liberty & those fighting for it ^ | June 19, 2009 | Jeff Head

Posted on 06/19/2009 10:26:09 PM PDT by Jeff Head

I just got this note from another poster and twitter on the Americans supporting Iranian liberty & those fighting for it site on Facebook.

This is pertinent right now to the situation in Iran.

Twitter Folks-set your location to Tehran and your time zone to GMT +3.30. Iranian security forces are hunting for bloggers using location/timezone searches. The more people at this location, the more of a logjam it creates for forces trying to shut Iranians' access to the internet down.

We have to help protect the Freedom Fighters.
Please pass the word. There are ways we can help. This is one of those ways.

Please use your twitter account whenever you can to help the protestors and screen them from the Revolutionary Guard efforts.

If enough of us do this, then at any given time we will provide them some cover.

Where do we find out about what’s going on in Tehran there on Twitter?

What ever you do, don’t identify the actual bloggers that are actually posting from Iran. Think OPSEC people! (Loose Lips sink ships!)

Please pass the word.

This is something we can do...though thousands of miles away, to show our solidarity, and active support for these brave people risking their lives on the streets of Tehran and other cities fighting tyranny and to win their own liberty.

God bless and keep them.

Their very actions are a postive and solid punctuation point to the policies of President George Bush who was responsible, though active support of liberty and engagement with enemies in the region, for establishing nations on either side of Iran where people are free for the first time in their history.

It has not been lost on the people of Iran.

And it is an absolute repudiation of the appeasement and disengagement of the Obama administration...and he knows it.

The people in Iraq are immeasutrably freer than they were before the war and our involvement.

In addition to helping purchase their liberty...and despite what you see on the news, my own friends who have been there for several years now as soldiers and contractors make it clear that the vast majority of Iraqis are extremely grateful for what we have done and want their freedom, in addition to all of that, we also set up a fly trap for Al Quida and Iranian regime supporters...and they were soundly defeated and died by the tens of thousands.

The people in Iran are not blind to this...and the word on the street is that they want the same type of liberty for themselves.

That's the truth of the situation...and apparently, despite the Obamanation Administration's lack of support, they are going for it.

Bibi and the Israelis are not blind to it and you can bet they are giving whatever suppor they can...and its more than words.

I have only limited sympathy for the Iranian opposition .
If they really want ‘change’ and really want to re-join the rest of the world , they will capture and lynch every last one of the main Mullahs , slaughter the basji and Rev Guards
and take the whole damn country back and stop all this
Allah Akbhar BS .
All the Madhi worshipers have to go. Terminated from the fabric of humanity once and for all . They cannot have their cake and eat it too . If they are so stupid they cannot see what a catastrophe their 30 yr experiment with Islamic theocracy is by now , I say we team up with Israel and just nuke the entire place back to the Stone Age .

I might suggest throwing out a “tweet” or two just to keep the Mullah’s IT people guessing as the day unfolds.

True, and make some of them from a phone or something other than a static computer. Not a Twitter expert here obviously but a lot of the Twitter clients show how the tweet has been posted.

Sending a “tweet” is just like sending out an IM. You’re just sending out a message.

Awesome picture there! Very reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square photo of the woman blocking the tanks! Let’s pray that tomorrow’s rally doesn’t end as another Tiananmen!

I do not think so. I think twitter has plenty of bandwidth...it’s just the more we fill it up with posters who are “located” there, the harder it will be for the Iranian Islamic Tyranny agents to find the protestors.

Yes, if you are using Twitter on your computer just type in at the box at the top and hit “update” and that sends out a “tweet”

You may also want to use this as your search on Twitter...”#iranelection” For the past couple of days this has been the most active trend on Twitter to follow the Revolution.

I have been following this since the election and it’s amazing to get info in real time.

The top trending topic to get info from the ground is:
#IranElection

You can follow on your cell or computer. Get real time photos and video links on you tube. Also beware you will read tweets that are spam or pro obama, dont rant cause you’ll just get shouted down.

If you do plan to tweet DO change the time zone to Iran if you are just watching there is no need to.
