Iran: The Revolution will be Twittered

Text by Ryan Bradley; Photograph by Bobby Model

Iran, right now, is the breaking news story, with hundreds of thousands of students taking the streets to protest the elections yesterday and, likely, today. There were beatings, mob violence, cars aflame…and lots and lots of tweets. Plenty of news agencies are just now latching onto this story, but none seems so deeply engaged (and constantly updating) as The Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan. He's been sifting through Twitter feeds, emails, video—really doing yeoman's duty to report on this 21st century revolution. Check his blog at: andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com
