"Iran II"

"In a nationally televised speech in Iran today, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei ordered his countrymen not to stage further protests, warning the nation, "I am following you all on Twitter."

To back up his words, the Supreme Leader then displayed his Twitter account page, showing that he was indeed following 65,875,224 people, but had only one follower, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Ayatollah's announcement sent a chill up the spines of opposition leaders, most of whom assumed that the Supreme Leader did not have a Twitter account.

"You mean he's been reading all my tweets?" said opposition organizer Mohsen Sobhi. "Oh, shit.""

someone ought to make a twitter account for "Great and Mighty Allah" and try to friend the Ayatollah. Maybe we can make him do whatever we want.

With Iran and Twitter both already in this story, all you need is a mention of the "collapsing global economy" and you've hit the american news trifecta.
