I tried it but could never understand what I am doing? I still go to my account once in a while to understand if I am missing something (in terms of tweeting) that other have understood.

Yes. I use it every day.

I don't use it - I've never really seen the point. This news story suggests its not as widely used as the media interest might suggest.

No. Not even when it's working.

Follow Iran news on twitter. I think at some place it has its use.

Indeed. Thus far, I've had no interest in using Twitter myself. Quite possibly, I never will. But as of this week, Twitter is nonetheless teh awesome, in my book. Maybe this is a once-only situation; I dunno. But for the moment, I salute Twitter - and those in its extended community who are trying to provide cover by converting their personal profile locations and timezones to appear as if they're posting from Iran. Dunno if it will have any real effect, but it's a nice thought at the very least, and could be much more. Either way: go, persiankiwi, go!
