Iran's supreme leader, Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei has gone, like, totally hipster.

He's joined Instagram.

Apparently the man who has been Iran's spiritual leader since 1989 couldn't be pinned down to just Twitter.

Since joining the photo sharing site a week ago Ayatollah Khamenei has been uploading images of prayer services and meetings, each with trendy filters to give them that old-school authentic look.

He may only have uploaded four photos so far but it's already earned him 272 followers and 65 "likes."

The supreme leader is featured in all of the photos which means he must have people to snap the shots on his behalf.

But we're sure he gets ultimate control over filters, contrast and tilt shift.
