Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.
Obviously their families in #Iran are also safe thanks 2 their lobbying
When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
#FreeAlavi
People in #Iran used anonymous @twitter accounts to tell the world about what is happening in the streets of #Tehran in real time. This is exactly what #HeshmatAlavi was doing especially during #IranProtests in Dec 2017 until his account was suspended.

I’m using Google translate to help me and it’s long… I’ll finish tomorrow.

How about I’ll begin with a summary of your argument then?

Sorry for the midnight drop!
I’ve been working on the English summary of “Zensurmaschine” yesterday + today and it took me whole evening to catch up with the discussion in the rest of the thread.

1/ Just watched UN Special Rapporteur @davidakaye present his report on AI and freedom of expression via #UNGA live stream and I’m here to report that in addition to incredible substance it was a real geopolitical thriller. Thread:
@davidakaye 2/ First, the Russian delegate held no punches in reversing the narrative to attack western media as the culprit of disinformation.
@davidakaye 3/ According to Russia, the material we label as “fake news” is actually the “better information” (the interpreter’s words, but telling) that we attempt to hide. Here, you can see the direct alignment between the Russian agenda to destabilize democracy and Trump's media playbook.

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@indiantweeter
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi
