Iranian protesters using new media to fight back

Foreign news organizations have been ordered not to film or cover any demonstrations in Iran.

But this is 2009 and the genie can’t be put back into the bottle.

Twitter remains a source of information. @iran09 is tweeting from Tehran and the “Twitterverse” is engaging in its own attacks on Web sites and new sources. @StopAhmadi, for example, is coordinating efforts to overwhelm pro-Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Web sites and crash the servers. Messages are being sent around the world with the URLs of Web sites, and Twitter users are complying.
