Iran restricts Instagram, Telegram as anti government protests burn like wild fire

Iranian Authorities have temporarily restricted social media networks Instagram and Telegram because anti government protests are being coordinated through them. This suggests that the protests are much more difficult to control for the government.

This restriction means there will be large scale communication disruptions as more than 50% of Iran’s 80 million population is active on the app.

Telegram’s CEO Pavel Durov tweeted that Iranian authorities took action because his company refused to shut down “peacefully protesting channels”.
We are watching the Iranian situation and we will bring you more as we get wind of it.
