Political texting in Iran
An Iranian Shiite woman takes pictures with her mobile phone in February 2005. The use of text messaging by Iranians to send often highly critical comments on their presidential election choice has worried the authorities, who are threatening to track down and convict mobile-addicts who insult the candidates. I only hope the newly elected Iranian President will change its political views in time…and then we should see the Iranians going straight for the moblogs.
