Reports: Attempts by Iranian Ministry of Intel to locate internet activists

leave a comment »

There are reports that the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence is attempting to track down internet activists. Many people on Twitter have asked for a show of solidarity from the rest of the world. They ask that everyone change their Twitter timezone to Tehran time (GMT +3hr30min). This will make it harder for Iranian officials to determine who is microblogging from Iran, thus making those activists in Iran harder to find.
