Operation Twitter Sheild

In his sermon on Friday afternoon, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei told the protesters "I am following you on twitter". It's true, the Ayatollah indeed has a tweet account and is following over 650,000 Iranians. To combat this and to confuse government officials who are trying to track citizens through Twitter, people have been asking users to change their time zone and location to Tehran. I am encouraging anyone who tweets to do this and then start re-tweeting your little hearts out. Right now they are aiming for 1 million people to change their account information, which would effectively sheild those citizens who are trying to communicate through the message boards. Even if you don't have a twitter account, go create one. As one person said "it could save lives".
