Has the US ever attacked Iran before?
One failed attempt in 1979 that ended badly.
That wasn't an attack. It was a rescue attempt.

So far it appears we have not been shadow banned, which is happening to some people.

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

The problem some of the suspended accounts seem to have had was that they were reporting things that were later shown to be false. (At least, that seems to be part of the Indian complaint.) That's the trouble with a lot of news these days. They are so quick to report without properly verifying the i...

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

So after researching this for a bit, it looks like this is all tied to some complaint by the Indian government. These accounts were suspended either because they were reporting on specific military movement or they were posting fake news. Your guess is as good as mine. But if it is the latter reason...

Re: US Iran tension 16 june 2019

The US isn't going to be bombing anything in Iran. My guess is that some "reporters" heard that the US was drawing up contigency plans and ran with it as if this was fact acompli.

Gad the reporting in the US is just awful these days.

Have any verified Twitter accounts been suspended? Or is it just unverified accounts?

IntelCrab was suspended? Odd, I did follow him fairly regularly and he didn't seem to post anything worthy of suspension.

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

Looks like Jerusalem Post is covering it. A group of popular Twitter accounts that tweet about open-source intelligence (OSINT) and generally try to highlight developing and breaking news stories were suspended on Saturday night for unspecified reasons. They join a growing list of account suspension...

Re: ELINT Twitter banned (Split from Iran/US Tensions #6/9/19)

I don't know what ELINT tweeted that got them banned. I do follow them, but not religiously, so their tweets can easily slip by me.

I've found them pretty reliable.
