You might think why is this guy sup­port­ing the Iran­ian rev­o­lu­tion du jour with a com­mu­nist free­dom twib­bon tweet­ing in Chi­nese? I'm not. If you're into brands and fonts you might have no­ticed the dis­tin­guished mu­ta­tion of the two char­ac­ters "e" in "Free", and that can only mean that is the Heineken font. So the star isn't com­mu­nist or some­thing, that's just part of the Heineken logo. And the green isn't Iran­ian, that's the green of the Heineken bot­tle. So we're talk­ing about "Free" in a beer con­text here. The in­ter­net isn't about rev­o­lu­tion, it's about free beer if it's even about some­thing. Free as in beer be­ing the sar­cas­tic form of Li­bre.

And the chi­nese char­ac­ters are just to avoid tldr, based on Kangxi rad­i­cal names: ⾠ = Morn­ing, ⼟ = Earth, ⼣ = Even­ing, ⾷ = Eat, ⽿大舟音夂巛 = WTFBBQ. You'll fig­ure it out.
