Twitter in Tehran - The Newest Tweets

As far as I'm concerned, Twitter is the best thing to happen to the internet. Only a week ago, it seemed so pointless, so trivial. Now it's true value comes becomes known, and it has dethroned CNN and the cable news networks. We are witnessing two revolutions at once.
