I guess this is an answer to a question.

Early Monday morning, a Twitterer sent a message to his 108 followers: "Running a proxy? Are you sure it's helping? Test it using instructions here." Twitterers are also instructing each other to change their location to Tehran to throw off the Iranian authorities targeting Twitter users in the country. Last week David Jenkins, a 45-year-old computer analyst from Canada, changed the location in his Twitter account from Ontario to Tehran.


Also on Twitter they are asking people to DDos Iranian government websites, there is a firefox extension that auto refreshes. So If you open a tab and sit on one of these websites it will close it down for a few hours (that's many people doing it at the same time though). Since I see about 1000 updates a minute on Twitter I'm sure there are many people doing these things. It all comes down to a way to protest without being there I guess. It's amazing to see so many involved.
Oh and here is a link to an Analysis posted in the Washingon post
