Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is an active twitterer (you can follow him at @khamenei_ir).

Mostly the tweets, in Persian and English, concern the main points of Khamenei’s speeches, pictures of his official meetings, and his views on a variety of things, for instance women’s rights.

Yesterday he was tweeting about ties with the United States and threats against Iran. Here are some of his tweets in case you’re not following him:

Iran's Leader calls Human Rights accusation on Iran as a joke while Americans don't respect people's lives in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan

Supreme Leader: In both times that we negotiated with Americans (on Ira&another issue),they had the lower hand and they refused to continue.

Ayatollah Khamenei: There is no doubt that the fake and occupier Zionist regime will collapse soon. They opposes our existence too.

Iran's Leader: The front against us is falsely calling itself as 'international community' but USA and Zionist regime are axis of this front

Iran's Leader on recent military threats against #Iran: If threats become serious, Iran's nation battlefield will not be just Middle East.

Iran's Leader emphasized that negotiation with USA under threat and pressure is not negotiation: We wont negotiate with anybody in this way.

Ayatollah Khamenei: Psychological warfare, sanctions, threatening to wage war and damaging unity is enemies propaganda against I.R. of Iran

These tweets are apparently from comments Khamenei made in meetings with officials.
