BBC: 'Why we are using socal media in Iran'

A BBC editor explains here why it is using social media to help cover the crisis in Iran.
BBC News website editor Steve Hermann says on the editors' blog: "So why are we also monitoring social media like the microblogging service Twitter and linking to its search results for the Iran elections?
"Simply put, it's because among the various impediments to reporting, there's a huge ongoing, informed and informative discussion in Iran between people who care deeply about what is happening there and who are themselves monitoring everything they can, then circulating the most useful information and links."
