In this show we discuss what happened when 6,769.5 Iranians on Twitter, answered a poll on whether they support Donald Trump or not.

Listen to this episode to find out what happened when we put a poll together and posted it in response to a tweet by TheTweetOfGod, who seemed a little puzzled as to why Iranians would support the American president, Donald Trump. Our poll was seen by just over 60,000 of his 6,100,000 following, and was engaged with by around 15,000 of them.

Also in this show:

  • What percentage of Iranians support Trump?
  • Which social media platforms are popular in Iran and why?
  • How do Iranians view social media even though it’s restricted for them?
  • Are there Twitter trolls helping influence the vote?
  • Who is TheTweetOfGod on Twitter?
  • What is TheTweetOfGod’s political opinion?
  • Does TheTweetOfGod have the ability to strike me down?
  • AND AN EPIC DISCLAIMER!

So how did this all come about? Well, listen and subscribe to the show to find out the precise details, or read on for a brief summary.

Who is TheTweetOfGod?

‘TheTweetOfGod’ is His holiness, personified on Twitter, and although the person behind this begun by tweeting the type of tweets you’d expect of such a character, recently He’s become rather political.  The heavens were seemingly shaking when He saw that an Iranian wearing a MAGA hat tweeted that she was an #IranianForTrump. His holiness somehow saw this as blasphemy and tweeted to Iranians that she is “…making you look really stupid”. 

How God Triggered Iranians

We thought we’d clear this up and put it to the Iranians, because… yeah, we’re Ask An Iranian. So our poll went as follows:
