Why is Iran popular right now?

After recent elections in Iran, protests have spread throughout the country in an effort to dispute the results. Some protesters have organized using Twitter. The Iranian government is allegedly responding by slowing internet speeds and taking to violence against citizens, including in universities. Recently the death of Neda Soltani (also trending) is bringing even more attention to the country as she was shot on June 20th and a bystander filmed her death. Footage spread online through Facebook and YouTube. (as of June 22 at 22:23 UTC)
