Khamenei maintains an English-language Twitter account known as@khamenei_ir, often complimented with Arabic- and Spanish-language translations on @khamenei_ar and @khamenei_es, respectively. Although Twitter is blocked in Iran and the account remains unverified by Twitter, the exclusive photos and information that it publishes points to Khamenei's office running the account for him. Meanwhile, the ayatollah's Farsi-language Twitter account, @farsi.khamenei.ir, has remained inactive since May 2015, indicating that his office is using the platform as a tool of international public diplomacy to propagate his views outside of Iran.
