Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Joins Instagram

Posted Aug 2, 2012

Ali Khamenei, the Grand Ayatollah of Iran, has joined Instagram last week and has posted four photos thus far under the username khamenei_ir.  Khamenei’s four photos Khamenei has been the leader of the country since 1989.  Social media advocates believe that this is hypocritical because Iran has major restrictions on Internet use.  Before a mass protest that took place three years ago, Internet in the whole country was blacked-out as pushed by the government.
