Iran continues to teeter on the brink of, well, something, as the world Tweets away. Tehran is trying to go all Tiananmen Square on the anti-Ahmadinejad protesters but Twitter is making it hard to keep a lid on what’s going on. CNN, hoping to stay relevant with the hipster TweetyBook crowd, is all agog over the events and how Twitter is at the center of it all.
So even as we mock some of Twitter’s more inane aspects (“Dave is pondering navel lint at the moment”), when the state departments asks Twitter to postpone routine maintenance to keep the events unfolding in Iran before the public eye, you know they are onto SOMETHING. Wish I’d thought of it first!
