Run an anonymous Twitter poster for Iranian protesters #iran #iranelection

Earlier tonight, we wrote and setup a simple script that will allow people in Iran to post to Twitter without direct access to Twitter (which is being blocked in-country). This script is run on our servers and posts to the AnonymousInIran Twitter account in order to keep the tweeters anonymous and, thus, assure their security. The problem is, of course, that the Iranian government is monitoring Twitter and it's probably just a matter of time before they block access to our site.

So we need your help.

We'd like to invite everyone to get a copy of our script and run your own anonymous Twitter poster. It's easy to setup and we'll walk you through it. The entire process takes about 20 minutes and is another way you can help Iranian voices be heard.

If you're interested, email me and I'll get you the script right away.
