Iranians have been forced to use proxie servers outside the country to communicate. The authorities have now started monitoring Twitter feeds (took them long enough) and are geo-locating them in order to punish the users. They have also begun zeroing in on specific cellphone users and arresting them.

Meanwhile activist hackers are swamping official Iranian government websites and crashing them from abroad.

Welcome to the Revolution.
