If you're tired of photos of people's feet or what they've ordered from Starbucks, here's a couple of interesting Instagram accounts you should follow: the one of the Syrian Presidency (account here) and Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei, the cleric who " controls the country's military, judiciary, and state broadcasting services." Comes complete with selfies.

Why didn't anyone think to snag the username khamenei_ir before? Iran's absolute ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has been tweeting up a storm using the same handle for a while now, and it appears the Supreme Leader recently decided to branch out to the photo-sharing app Instagram.
