Iran avalanche on Twitter
Recent Iranian election, or the farce of it is making huge waves on the internet almost on all social networking sites including Twitter and YouTube.
I just peeped in #Iranelection and here is what I found:
And the 177 updates happened in just 10 seconds and it was still walloping as I pressed the “Prt Scr” button.
Had I waited a full minute the update count would have crossed 1000. Such was the hyperactivity by netizens on this issue.
And what has triggered this avalanche to a great extent?
Playing and replaying over and over again of the brutal killing of Neda, a teenage Iranian girl during the protests. Here is the video footage:
