Video: Iranians tweet their displeasure

17 06 2009 – With a media ban stifling coverage from within Iran, protesters are turning to Twitter to get their message out.

Supporters of defeated presidential candidate Mirhossein Mousavi posted defiant messages on Twitter and Facebook, and uploaded videos of protests to share sites like YouTube.

Social networking websites have become a focal point for young Iranians opposed to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Mousavi has almost 48,000 supporters on his main Facebook page. Ahmadinejad also has a page with 2,615 fans, while the "I bet I can find 1,000,000 people who dislike Mahmoud Ahmadinejad!" group has more than 57,000 members.
