twitter

Following the heads up from Hilaliya about the use of Twitter by Iranian protesters to provide news feeds after the ban on the international media, I was monitoring tweets from Iran. Over the last 2 hours I have seen guidelines on how to help the online protesters, calls for DDoS attacks, live reports on whats happening at the protests and in the streets. The tweets have been the only real source of information, so real that the US state department has asked Twitter to reschedule a planned maintenance outage for later.
It is really interesting to see Web 2.0 in action.
