Free Iran from the terrorist regime!!

Nothing

Down With Twitter, Iranian Pride

I live in the US.
We're going to let the Israelis handle this little problem for us.
It's called "CARPET BOMBING"

Twitter Suck....USA suck

I live in the UK and see no point of the iranians doing this , if they want todo so
something make Iranitter.

Since when did cyber anyone, from another country, use Gmail accounts? I am dubious about this event at best. Maybe twitter did it themselves for free the advertising? Stranger things. PEACE to all peoples from all nations. I am an American, yet I do not believe that I am better than anyone from here or abroad. PEACE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON! Merry Christmas to all!

U Suck More Than I DO!!

I have never used Twitter nor see the need to update everyone on every little thing you do all day.... But still, quite a problem. Kind of funny they "stick it to the man" on the internet, instead of being real men and showing their face... oh wait they would easily be killed if they did that, my bad. =]

I guess "cyber terrorism" is a growing issue... as I see it, cyber terrorism is just about as effective as throwing a pebble in a stream and expected it to impede the flow of the water. Very sad, all in all.

I`m sure it`s not work od Iran, but USA is for sure did this so they could blame Iran for cyber-terrorism

Twitter sucks... I am glad it got hacked.
But, contrary to what people are saying against the USA, I like living here.

this is not normal...
milions of poeple in iran using twiter for transfering news and i donno why the have to do this?
maybe some people are not happy with twiter cuase its using and carring some important news on the web now and its not good for them... maybe they did this.

that's very good and i hope they hack more
