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.Please pass the word. There are ways we can help. This is one of those ways.
We have to help protect the Freedom Fighters.
If enough of us do this, then at any given time we will provide them some cover.
This is awesome, thanks!
Where do we find out about what’s going on in Tehran there on Twitter?
Does this help even if you don’t tweet?
What ever you do, don’t identify the actual bloggers that are actually posting from Iran. Think OPSEC people! (Loose Lips sink ships!)
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.
Amen to that. Loose lips..get people killed.
Just reset my account....!!!
How is this done? I am a creature of the nineteenth century—just about to get a Blackberry Storm for the first time tomorrow. I want to help but I don’t Twitter.
Pinged my lists on this thread:
This is exciting! It’s just like when we helped those poor, oppressed muslims in Iraq gain their freedom from an evil tyrant and...
Go to Twitter.com and set up an account....it’s easy.
You did not answer me. Does changing the settings, which I did, help even if you don’t send out tweets?
I set up an account just to do this.
Self ping for tomorrow...Thanks, Jeff :)
Set up an account and set your time and place as he suggests. It takes just a couple of minutes at twitter.com
