Spencer Ackerman called the Iranian tweeter "the world's most important journalist" last week. He's been tweeting nearly non-stop since election day, providing many of the best, most accurate, tweets of the protests and police/basij response. But the tweets stopped 12 hours ago (a near eternity for PK) with these final, ominous dispatches:
they catch ppl with mobile - so many killed today - so many injured - Allah Akbar - they take one of us - #Iranelection
they pull away the dead into trucks - like factory - no human can do this - we beg Allah for save us - #Iranelection
Everybody is under arrest & cant move - Mousavi - Karroubi even rumour Khatami is in house guard - #Iranelection
we must go - dont know when we can get internet - they take 1 of us, they will torture and get names - now we must move fast - #Iranelection
thank you ppls 4 supporting Sea of Green - pls remember always our martyrs - Allah Akbar - Allah Akbar - Allah Akbar #Iranelection
Demosthenes is nervous. So is Nico (see 7:51 PM update). And an Iranian blogger has reached the point of exhaustion.
