BREAKING: US AIMS FARSI TWITTER AT IRAN SAYS LOOK AT EGYPT
U.S. Aims Farsi Twitter Account At Iranians
Published: February 13, 2011
by The Associated Press

The U.S. State Department began sending Twitter messages in Farsi on Sunday in the hopes of reaching social media users in Iran.

On the Twitter account, USA darFarsi, the department told Iranians, "We want to join in your conversation."

The second and third tweets were more pointed. The State Department accused Iran's government of illegalizing dissent while praising Egyptian protesters for the same activities.

The U.S. then called on Iran "to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo."

The Farsi Twitter account had 60 followers within two hours of its launch.

Last week, the State Department launched an Arabic Twitter feed in an effort to communicate with the Egyptian protesters who eventually brought about the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak. [Copyright 2011 The Associated Press]

Damn those Iranian (stupid) who answer those twitter will be in great risk and danger. The government 100% will id them and will know who they are (specially the new Cyber Cop units). They will be in big trouble and danger. When will they learn.

Adding this to personal pins until it gets pinned, and it looks like this is going to be big news.
