I'll be updating this post throughout the day. First something important that can be worked on right away though - it seems that Michael Jackson's funeral has resulted in #Iranelection being removed from Twitter's trending topics.
But! Don't forget that most people writing in Persian on Twitter aren't adding the #Iranelection hashtag so let's ask them to. Here's my tweet in Persian (that I'm pretty sure is correct). It says:
دوستانمان در ایران "#انتخابات ایران" در انگلیسی خیلی مهمه، فراموش نکنید #Iranelection <-- اینطور بنویسید
The Washington Times has an op-ed here on Khamenei's strategic error.
Here's a video from June 20th that I missed for some reason - it's called Biyaa and is by a band of expat Iranians in Sweden. Not only is the song itself quite good (also not the type of music one would expect from a band singing in Persian) but the lyrics in Persian are also written right below so it's perfect for those learning the language.
