In English at least, the new government is also adopting a nickname that would sound familiar to American ears: RouhaniCare.

Rouhani doesn't tweet from the account himself, but he has tacitly endorsed it, saying it is written by "friends." The English-language account is also retweeted and cited by the New York Times's Tehran bureau chief.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
