Also the letter from the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions makes for extremely difficult reading. https://t.co/uQIXhz4njs https://t.co/hf95g5LBZl

My mum @NazeninA is hosting a room on @Clubhouse on #Iran on Sunday. So many important questions to be answered. How does she know what Clubhouse is? When did she get cooler than me? How can I reverse this trend? https://t.co/7vn1o0f22R

Ever since Signal simultaneously hit #1 on the 🇮🇷 Play Store and #1 on the 🇮🇷 government's block list, we've been working around 🇮🇷 censorship. Unable to stop registration, the IR censors are now dropping all Signal traffic. Iranian people deserve privacy. We haven't given up.

اسم برای دخترم چی پیشنهاد می‌کنید 😇🤗😊؟ مهمه که خوش‌آهنگ و کوتاه باشه. خیلی خیلی مهمه که تلفظش برای غربی‌ها راحت باشه (هیچی نباشه، مادرش سوئدی/بنگالی است) اگه خنثی از جنسیت باشه (مثلا سیمون) یه نکته مثبته. کلیشه‌ای نباشه. سه ماه دیگه جوجه میاد. 😍

Thank you for asking me to perform. It was so special for me to celebrate with the nation in front of the memorial to one of our greatest presidents. AND I loved honoring the late great Nina Simone, my constant source of musical inspiration. https://t.co/9YBN74w3ck

So hope for a great sea-change On the far side of revenge. Believe that a farther shore Is reachable from here. Believe in miracles And cures and healing wells. . . . And hope and history rhyme.
