Twitter Alert: #IranElection "So you want to help Iranians, but you're not actually in Iran? Here's what you can do to help"

June 15, 2009
  • Change your location and time zone on Twitter to Tehran, Iran (that’s GMT+3:30
  • Change your profile icon to green in some way. (GREEN your avatar: upload pic select nightvision -VH)
  • Set up a proxy. and send a DM to @ProtesterHelp. On Windows, do this and on Linux do this
  • DO NOT retweet posts from Iran. This puts the users at risk. The Iranian Ministry of the Interior is watching Twitter closely now.
  • (PLEASE remove account info & just put “RT from Iran” for Iranian twitter users safety. It has become a trending topic. -VH)
  • Submit e-mails to CNN and other news sources about the Iranian Revolution- demand more coverage

Where else should you do? Follow people you’re interested in, show your support. Also, RT the advice from @ProtesterHelp. They are tweeting suggestions for Iranian protesters in English and Farsi (granted, it’s broken Farsi, but Farsi nonetheless!
And of course, RT this post
