Think Progress has this report on the tweets from house republican's Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), Rep. David Dreier, & Rep. John Culberson (R-TX).

From House Republicans: Iranian Bloggers Are Just Like Us, We’re Both An ‘Oppressed Minority’:

In comparing themselves to the Iranian dissidents, Dreier, Culberson, and Hoekstra offensively discount the great personal risk many Iranians are taking by continuing to blog, Twitter, and protest. The Iranian National Guard told bloggers to take down any material that might “create tension,” or face legal action. One Iranian provincial prosecutor warned that the “few elements” behind the protests “could face the death penalty under Islamic law.”

The worst Hoekstra and Culberson faced during their so-called Twitter revolution? Inadequate lighting.
