Iran’s Masked Revolution

If a revolution in Iran occurs, it will probably be known as the Masked Revolution (you read it here first) or the Anonymous Revolution because during the days leading up to the revolt protesters – scared of retribution – wore masks to hide their identity.

One thing is for sure news of a revolution would travel around the globe in seconds. That is definitely different from the revolution 30 years ago. In fact, the election protests are already a global phenomenon on twitter #IranElection. Protesters are urged to mask their profile pictures with green screen, change their profile location to Tehran and change their profile timezone to GMT+3:30 in order to confuse those seeking out protestors in Tehran.

This has sparked live, grass-roots protests around the world with the tag line Green For Iran.
