Night had fallen in the Iranian capital, Tehran, as Hassan Rouhani, the new president of Iran, sent a message via his now-famous Twitter account: he had just gotten off the telephone with President Obama, who had called him. ?Wow, this is fantastic,? said Armin Kay, an engineer among those reacting to the news. ?The most important is that Obama took the initiative, this will go down really well with our leadership.? It was the first telephone conversation between the top leaders of Iran and United States since the Islamic revolution in 1979.
