EDIT
Moeed Ahmad: Al Jazeera on the Front Edge of Media
AIRED:
Much was made of the importance of Twitter and other forms of social media during last year's Iranian election. But were the tweets out of Iran really representative of the view on the ground? Social media sites are being embraced throughout the developing world: even in countries where repressive regimes limit freedom of speech and media access.
