Cyber Warfare, Ctd

From HuffPo:

11:37 AM ET — Sabotaging Twitter. If you’ve been watching the Iran unrest unfold on Twitter, I think you’ll agree that there’s been an increase in messages, allegedly from Iranians, that seem phony or meant to cause confusion. Surely, some of this is due to pranksters, in the U.S. and elsewhere, who simply enjoy disrupting social networking technology.

In addition, legitimate Iranian tweeters are getting concerned about something more sinister.

# DO NOT RT anything U read from “NEW” tweeters, gvmt spreading misinfo #gr88 #iranelection# RT @RobertHooman: RT @stopAhmadi Security forces opening twitter accounts 2 pose as protestors n spread disinformation

If true, insidious. I’d be curious though at how effective they are at emulating the protesters’ voices.
