Twitter Use During Iran Election

Twitter Use During Iran Election

I never thought i’d see the day when the US State Department would ask Twitter to reschedule maintenance for the site until later, as it was determined to be important in the news coverage of the Iranian Election. I suppose there are other uses for the start-up Microbogging site than the usual updates letting me know my friends have gotten a $5 footlong, or that a relationship break-up is looming.

Here’s a good article about the Iranian Election usage of Twitter.
