Tweets from Iran about Election more Enlightening Than Mainstream News

There is better coverage of what is happening in Iran on Twitter than there is on mainstream news.  Check out tweets from change_for_iran for on-the-ground reporting.

Pretty amazing to see protests like this in a country that is so regressive. Change is in the air.

Oh, on another note, I really enjoyed watching this lone dancing dude catalyze a huge dance thing.  Worth watching all the way through.  Shows the power that one individual can have to affect change.
