Retro-style pictures of the veteran religious figurehead have appeared on his Twitter account apparently posted by him.
Of course, as supreme leader, the 73-year-old doesn’t follow anyone on Twitter, but since joining Khamenei has given more than 2,800 updates and gained nearly 4,400 followers.
They show Khamenei, who has led Iran since 1989, praying, standing around with officials and sitting over a Koran.
The revelation comes three years after his regime shut down internet service after Iranians used Twitter and photo-sharing services to coordinate mass protests.
