Iran Welcomes Instagram in its blacklist

Iran has already banned Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, and yesterday it reportedly added Instagram to its blacklist.

According to the AP, a private lawsuit was brought against Iran's Ministry of Communications, forcing the bureau to restrict access to Instagram.

While Iran's Top Officials may use social media, the general poblic isn't allowed to join them. There's no evidence that such filtering is in place right now, and users in the capital Tehran were still able to take some selfies around noon Friday. Still, given that social media is a threat to the country's conservative establishment, you can imagine that someone will keep bringing lawsuits until no-one can say lemme take a selfie.
