Iranians Get Access to Twitter, Facebook Without Restrictions

leave a comment »

For the first time in four years, many Iranians logged on to Facebook and Twitter Monday night without using  virtual private networks  or any anti-filtering software, according to journalists in Tehran. Other blocked sites reportedly remain unavailable.

Following the election protests in 2009, the Iranian government blocked access to Twitter in a bid to limit reporting from the ground. The Green Movement protests, in response to former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s re-election, sparked millions of Iranians to share information and pictures on Twitter. Since then, Iranians have turned to special software to navigate around the block.
