The Government has been cracking down on text messaging, reports Shahram Rafiizadeh, who blogs under the name Rooz.

"Text messaging with political content, especially making fun of government officials has been rising in number and volume," says the Rooz blog. It's stll a new service in Iran - But it's already surpassed the popularity of the Internet.

It's not popular with everyone, though. President Admadinejad is keen to clean up what he sees as unacceptable use of text messaging, perhaps because some of those messages involve jokes about his personal hygiene.

Four arrests were made in connection with prohibited text messages, Rooz reports, the second time people in Iran have been arrested for unacceptable use of SMS.
