The Revolution Will Be Twittered.

Twitters from Iran



Picassa page by Bahramks

I never want to hear how st00pid or worthless teh intertubes are. The failure of American and international media is stunning.
That a new information technology could be improvised for this purpose so swiftly is a sign of the times. It reveals in Iran what the Obama campaign revealed in the United States. You cannot stop people any longer. You cannot control them any longer. They can bypass your established media; they can broadcast to one another; they can organize as never before.
