Hillary Clinton talks about Twitter, cell phone technology in Iran, Afghanistan

Today, Saturday October 10, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the CNN Christine Amanpour on her “Power & Persuasion” hour that the State Department had worked with Twitter during the Iran election crisis to keep the site up, when it needed maintenance, so that dissidents could continue communicating. She also said that the department had place cell phone towers in Afghanistan in order to provide opposition to Taliban communications from FM broadcasts from mobile vehicles.
