The sites found by Reuters are visited by more than half a million people a month, and have been promoted by social media accounts with more than a million followers.Reuters could not determine whether the Iranian government is behind the sites; Iranian officials in Tehran and London did not reply to questions.But all the sites are linked to Iran in one of two ways. The social media companies have closed hundreds of accounts that promoted the sites or pushed Iranian messaging.The identity or location of the past owners of some of the websites is visible in historical Internet registration records: 17 of 71 sites have in the past listed their locations as Iran or Tehran, or given an Iranian telephone or fax number.
