We Are All Iranians Now

Sadly, I don't Twitter, but this might be a good reason to start.

I Twitter vicariously through Tony and yesterday, he did exactly what you describe. Then he posted that, although Sect. Clinton (now of fractured elbow fame) said we weren't meddling in the Iranian election, she was dressed in a solid green pants suit as she spoke. His post set of a flurry of replies. Twitter seems to be the new source for news. Tony found a Twitter thread this morning called #CNNfail which has the slogan: "CNN: Reading Twitter to old folks since 2009."
