“As Iran’s leadership embraces Facebook and Twitter, its citizens remain blockaded behind firewalls and filters”

Check out this very, very interesting article on the total hypocrisy of Iranian leadership’s use of Twitter, Facebook, social media, etc, while the majority of their population can’t even see it.

A great excerpt:

“Sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are blocked within Iran, underscoring a fundamental tension that has only recently begun to crystallize: as Iranian officials continue to spread their messages across social platforms, the country’s citizens remain quarantined behind web filters and firewalls, unable to legally access the services that have suddenly become an important part of their political landscape.”
