Richard.Tao writes: The Iranian elections have widely been considered as rigged across the world, further proof of oppressiveness of the Iranian government is it's clamp down on protests from the results. They've blocked many media sites and social networking sites and it seems, for some reason, that Twitter is the bastion of the revolution.
I recently got a twitter account to follow the feed and rumors abound as to how best fight the Iranian government. A real worry is that people posting legitimate news from Iran will be noticed and imprisoned by the government, which has sadly been happening a lot.
There have been a ton of posts of supposed cures to protect the Iranian posters. The most prevalent is having people outside of Iran change their time and location to Tehran so the authorities have too many Iranians to sift through, would that help? Another major suggestion is hosting proxy servers so people can bypass the Iranian filters. Also there's a roomer that the government is blocking the tag people have been using to communicate, #iranelections, is that possible?
With so many roomers flying it seems impossible to separate fact from fiction, and ideas possibly suggested by the Iranian government to sabotage the twitter revolution. What is the best and most efficient way to run a twitter revolution and protect the people giving us news from Iran?
