Too many people in Iran know enough English and have enough Web skills to know what he did say.
You are certain? Why?
(setting aside Twitter technical limitations, state ICT controls, and fluency)
Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
As to web skills: the regime has been cracking down on internet and telecommunications generally since this thing began and they haven't succeeded in isolating Iran from the global information net.
Second, too many people have the English skills simply due to the fact English is the default global scientific, technical, and business language. Anyone wishing to communicate globally uses English; it's "every bodies" preferred second language. BTW, that's why American and British language skills are for garbage: we don't need to learn the global language; we own it from birth.
Ever since I learnt about confirmation bias I've started seeing it everywhere
