The hashtag #TwitterBanKhamenei is quickly gaining traction as Iranians call on Twitter to ban all accounts of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on the platform, after the government almost completely shut off access to the internet across the country, following protests over an increase in fuel prices.
We will be calling on Twitter to ban Khamenei. Please do it. #TwitterBanKhamenei— Maryam Nayeb Yazdi (@maryamnayebyazd) November 17, 2019
I invite all activists to call on @Twitter to ban supreme leader of Islamic Republic @khamenei_ir until Internet access is restored. Without it we cannot monitor human rights violations. #TwitterBanKhamenei https://t.co/S86jlOmdZb— Masih Alinejad 🏳️ (@AlinejadMasih) November 17, 2019
