Right now the government of Iran is not just “cracking down on journalism”. They are killing people over there and are actively looking for bloggers and tweeters to shut them down.
4. Help cover the bloggers: change your twitter settings so that your location is TEHRAN and your time zone is GMT +3.30. Security forces are hunting for bloggers using location and timezone searches. If we all become ‘Iranians’ it becomes much harder to find them.
There is more on helping the Iranian bloggers and other homegrown media.
So, help if you can.
My cat is now twittering. She’s not consistent, but she’s active politically. She also enjoys licking her butt, pooping, eating and napping on her staff me and Dad.
