The Sun on Twitter in Iran

Big spread in The Sun today on the way Twitter is being used by opponents of the regime in Iran.
Story starts: "TWITTER became a key weapon yesterday in the bitter war of words that could determine Iran's future.
The instant-chat website was used to mobilise protesters as new demonstrations were staged in the capital Tehran.
And a crackdown on media coverage by embattled President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made it a valuable tool for opposition activists desperate to communicate with the outside world."
A picture story, also in today's Sun, shows a less serious use of the networking micro blog. "Saucy starlet Lindsay Lohan gives fans a real tweet - a topless snap she posted on Twitter."
