Today morning Iran blocked users from accessing Twitter and Fcebook. Well, facebook was blocked as being illegal since 2006 but Iranian authorities unblocked Facebook on February 2009 to give the impression that they are willing to unblock sites and provide more freedom but we knew it wasn’t the case.
Now that they found out Facebook and Twitter became human rights and political platforms against not only government but also regime, so government decided to block these sites. Good news is Iranian users came up with other ways to use these sites.
Islamic Iran has a long history of censorship and internet censorship from day one. Isn’t it a typical behavior of totalitarian/theocratic regimes? By the way, don’t miss this poster about Ahmadinejad and a computer mouse!
