One of my interests, as stated on my profile page, is "the intersection of technology/new media with social and political activism."
Reuters India has an article titled, "U.S. State Department speaks to Twitter over Iran.
It is no surprise that Iranians are Tweeting. I think what was a surprise was the reported interaction between the State Department and Twitter. It seems as though, Twitter has decided to delay a scheduled maintenance/upgrade. The article reads in part, "Twitter Inc said in a blog post it delayed a planned upgrade because of its role as an "important communication tool in Iran." The hourlong maintenance was put back to 5 p.m. EDT/2100 GMT, which corresponds to 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday in Iran.
