    Here is how liberty-lovers can help their counterparts in Iran right now:

    How to Confuse Iranian Censors on Twitter

    Very briefly, preceding the recent elections in Iran, many leftists [note: the protestors include leftists, but also many others ... don't let the left claim credit for this!! doug] had been organizing protests and what not via Facebook and other social networks.

    However, Iranian censors quickly jumped on this trend and blocked Facebook’s site from the entire country. Following the elections, protests ensued and were organized and publicized on Twitter, which the luddite bureaucracy failed to block in time.

    Iranian censors are now combing the Twitter network for dissidents in a Stasi-like fashion. In retaliation, people around the world have tried to throw a wrench in their efforts:

    Change Your Time zone and Home City:

    Click Twitter Settings in the top right, change your Home City to Tehran and your time zone to GMT +3:30 (Tehran Time).

    It’s likely that the first method of filtering will relate to the location of the user. If we flood Twitter with accounts that all appear to be from Tehran, we build a bigger data cloud that the censors have to sift through in their search for Iranian dissidents. This is not foolproof, but will likely buy them some time in the same way that searching “John Smith” on Facebook will yield a frustratingly large selection of people to search through.

    Change the Name Associated with your Twitter Account

    Click Twitter Settings and change your birth name to something Iranian. You can find a list of Iranian names here.


    Should the censors end up on your account, your American (or whatever) name will be a likely clue that you aren’t worth their time.

    Repost Content

    Follow someone posting from Iran and repost their material.

    Content is the ultimate tell tale of who is and isn’t a dissident in this situation. By your reposting someone else’s content censors will be forced to look at the timestamp of the Tweet to decipher who is the original writer. Ideally, your follow-up Tweet would be so close to the initial posting time that the two become indiscriminate. You can also go a step further and, if they have uploaded a photo, save the file and re upload it via your account (merely linking to their account is liable to clue the censors in).

    Edit: Be careful in reposting, there have been reports of false accounts going up to provide misinformation to the prostestors. More info here.

    Do not repost things verbatim, paraphrase. Also, when retweeting to not use the original poster's name.

    Maintain the ‘false data cloud’

    Even in the event that Iran blocks Twitter as they did Facebook, it is likely that the censors will still have access to the site, and will continue to comb it. Sustaining your efforts could serve to further delay the censors.

    Obviously, none of these methods are foolproof. The idea is to buy any of the said dissidents time to hide, evacuate or so on…

    "If only for an instant, we will unite what you have divided. Our calls will be heard from shore to shore, through borders, races, classes and languages, For we bear a torch that burns one hundred thousand years strong, we carry the flame of revolution.”

    Yeah, the time zone and location alteration seems to be the main strategy thus far.

    If you know how to set up proxies, thats also extremely helpful. If you do, please ask me for what to do with them, do NOT post them on twitter.

    This will not do any good. Mullahs run Iran. This is like fighting over who will be vice president Biden or Pilosi.

    And what make you think Mullash hate Democracy? Mullahs are getting together right now in Qom to try to remove Khamanei from power. By the way, more than the Mullash, the army runs Iran and supposedly they are staying out of this one.

    Feel free to cut and paste my commentary (below) on what Khamenei said Friday.
    I always counter propaganda whenever I see blatant abuses.
    Your Twitter blogs would be the perfect home for my message, thanks!
    ---start commentary----

    Friday, Khamenei the supreme leader (in his own narcissistic eyes) stood in front of a crowd of death cult like zombies in Iran and said that he was a supporter of the oppressed like those oppressed in Palestine and Iraq.
    But because they (the Mullahs and Iranian Gov't) control info and media in their country most of those zombies and many in the Islamic
    world don't realize that these same Mullahs and Khamenei are the actual oppressors of the Palestinians.
    How you might ask? The Obvious is the suppression of the Iranians themselves but also it's simple to notice they oppress the Palestinians through proxy control/support, funding, training supplying and manipulation and control by and through Hamas which oppresses the people of Palestine and are the ACTUAL cause of all their hardship.
    Hamas is Iran Radicalism transplanted, and hidden behind the guise of a movement and they have no right interfering with Palestinian matters just as Iran complains the west and Europe does to Muslim nations or at least Iran.
    It's Khamenei and Iran who is instigating destruction and death and sect violence in a proxy battle in Iraq too.
    If Iraqis are oppressed it's by the hands of Iran's interferences and participation is causing unrest and havoc.
    The same things they bitch about they get these paranoia's from knowing their own hand in butting in where they need not be or have no right to be especially the way they bring control, destruction, and suffering and oppression of Palestinians and Iraqis while trying to claim others are doing it.
    Israel is giving them freedom while Iran is Oppressing Palestine and preventing their freedoms.
    They thwart peace at all cost because as long as they can war with Israel and the west through a proxy battle in another land like Palestine
    and use the movement for support of radicalism and fool their masses and control them by these lies and propaganda they can surely keep people busy away from Iran and without direct blame or responsibility.
    Khamenei is the one who authorizes the weapons and control and oppression sent to Palestine.
    Khamenei is the one who thwarts peace and covets hate, war, destruction and everything opposing the Creator's creation.
    Who is he kidding about the Oppressed, Iran and the Mullahs are the ones at the reins of these oppressions they claim they are figthting people's right for.
    Wake up all you zombies, Iran is being duped, Islam is being Hijacked and duped by people claiming to be spokesmen for G0d and man when actually they are opposition to our Creator and Creation.
    Rise up and remove the virus that infects your society.
    Remember these verses:
    [the Koran 2:195]: 'Act for the sake of Allah, and do not throw yourselves to destruction with your own hands.'
    Ask yourself are these Mullahs and these dictators on the side of Imam Mahdi or anti Imam Mahdi/opposition to the head Imam to come?
    For the Imam Mahdi “will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace". (24: 55)
    Surely they are doing the opposite, stand for the opposite thus they have chosen to despise everything Imam Mahdi and Allah intends for us.

    Wonderful to see the Iranians standing up to the authoritarian lunatics in their nation, isn't it?

    Wish we had that sort of balls, here in America.

    Bigger provocation, bigger ricochet. Makes Lenin and Stalin's desire for things to get worse in Russia to provoke revolt seem apt.

    A few days ago one of the Gov't Officials and spokesmen for Iran said that the protesters throwing rocks and staging violent protests during the rallies was an act of terrorism and unless the protesters rallied peacefully the Iranian Gov't had the right to use force and suppress the uprising.
    First off the regime cracked down even on peaceful rallies and any non peaceful rallies or moment within a rally became that way because the regime had thugs crack down hard on the protesters.

    By making this statement Iran has Officially admitted that Israel was within it's rights to suppress violent uprising and that Hamas and radicals in Palestine were in the wrong for not using peaceful means.
    Since the Iranian regime sponsored and supplied most of these violent uprisings targeting woman and children, malls and schools, and buses we can conclude that Iran's regime admits it's position in their own standard and eyes is wrong but as hypocrites and hate mongers they do it anyway because they have a displaced blame behavior problem that even self reflection can not cure.

    When The Iranian dictator/president said for Obama and the U.S. to butt out he was admitting his regime was wrong for butting in on our elections, Palestinian, Iraqi, and Lebanon elections, butting in on Palestinian, Iraqi, and Lebanon affairs and well as butting in on Kurdish affairs and rights.

    So far out of this mess the regime has admitted all along that they are evil and corrupt by their own words and own actions we see them revealed and displacing blame onto others will not hide them from truth and justice.
