I follow Persiankiwi on twitter. He has been namefagged on many mainstream sites and I want him much sucess. Also, even if this posted before - The purpose of this guide is to help you participate constructively in the Iranian election protests through Twitter. 1. Do NOT publicise proxy IPs over twitter, and especially not using the #iranelection hashtag. Security forces are monitoring this hashtag, and the moment they identify a proxy IP they will block it in Iran. If you are creating new proxies for the Iranian bloggers, DM them to @stopAhmadi or @iran09 and they will distributed them discretely to bloggers in Iran. 2. Hashtags, the only two legitimate hashtags being used by bloggers in Iran are #iranelection and #gr88, other hashtag ideas run the risk of diluting the conversation. 3. Keep you bull$hit filter up! Security forces are now setting up twitter accounts to spread disinformation by posing as Iranian protesters. Please dont retweet impetuosly, try to confirm information with reliable sources before retweeting. The legitimate sources are not hard to find and follow. 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. 5. Dont blow their cover! If you discover a genuine source, please dont publicise their name or location on a website. These bloggers are in REAL danger. Spread the word discretely through your own networks but dont signpost them to the security forces. People are dying there, for real, please keep that in mind Peoples lives are at stake here so this is more delicate than the other stuff. This is bullets in brains stake kind of thing. We've noticed a massive push-back from the gov trying to find and eliminate the Inztanet access of activists. You've seen the broken computers. If not, go to andrew sullivan's blog or Nico Pitney's blog. This is called super secret club time. Setup proxies for use and deny bullet shooting men knowledge of it.
