re: This is terrible! Is the ban/block based on your IP address? or the location field in your profile? or something else?
 

I think that's the worst part, apparently it isn't IP/geolocation based because there is at least one guy who lives and works in Finland that got blocked: twitter.com/Farzad_YZ/status/11546...

His GitHub says he is in Helsinki as well, github.com/farskid

And it's a ban on your account, so even if you left Iran you wouldn't be unbanned.
