Warning, there are some graphic pictures in the video, but it explains a lot about what's been going on in Iran.

If you've been following me on Twitter (or have unfollowed me because of excessive tweets related to #Iranelection), you know that I've been watching what's happening in Iran closely. With news media remaining mostly silent while this was starting to unfold, some in Iran started using Twitter to get their message out about what was happening. Doing so is very risky, but very brave. It's a new world now with social media, and while there can be misinformation transmitted along with truly breaking news, it's much harder for a government to keep its people silent when they want their voices heard.
