State Department turns to Twitter to reach Iranians


www.usatoday.com

After watching Facebook and other social media help grass-roots movements toss repressive regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, the State Department is turning to Twitter to encourage opposition groups in Iran, where thousands clashed with police Monday in the country's largest gathering of anti-government protesters in more than a year.

Yes. The U.S. State Department. They're not even hiding their encouragement this time, as they seemed to have done with Egypt? Seems they're jumping right in with both feet. Here's some of what they're sending.


"U.S. calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo," another said.


Twitter sure is getting a workout, but I'm assuming that if they haven't cut cellular service already they may soon?


The State Department tweets came ahead of violent clashes Monday in Tehran between Iranian police and thousands of demonstrators protesting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the first major anti-government gathering since his re-election in June 2009.


Okay. That takes care of our feelings about Ahmadinejad, and in fact this entire thing focuses on him. But what about the mullahs?

There is NO easier way to overturn a government that does not fit with another countries foreign policies! Get the people to do the job from the inside. although this has been done in the past using agents...this can now be done with software! Mind-boggling, amazing, and scary all at the same time.

Just keep an eye on Egypt and learn of the effects of this. (Not saying that this was done on purpose by a country but this is a possibility)

Peace & Respect,

Tweet wars might be the way to go for the future
Isn't Twitter located in San Francisco? They could run the show from there. Stop a war at the flick of a switch? Sounds good to me.

And actually. many Iranians more than likely do use Twitter and Facebook, particularly the younger crowd.

Cyber attacks hit Iran as U.S. reaches out via Twitter "Welcome to the modern world of Web warfare."

Iran is a whole different animal compared to Egypt. I dont see the Iranian regime having a problem going out in the streets and just eliminating protestors. Worries me immensely that maybe the US wants just that to happen. Give them a reason other than Irans nuclear program to start another war. Could be wrong and for once would be thrilled to be wrong
