In the days that social life is more in the digital realm than physical, Do we forget about those who are offline? Those that are not covered by the news?

A country's internet is shut down, 82 million people's access to the outside world is denied, their work, their families, all separated.

I browsed the news on @AppleNews, 54 hours after the shutdown has started:

Spoiler alert: "No coverage of #IranianProtests".

The @TheAdvocateMag's recommendation article titled #PowerToThePeople is about #MovingForward* book by @K_JeanPierre.

* People? All People? Nope. "Moving Forward: A Story of Hope, Hard Work, and the Promise of America"

One third of the news (@WSJ, @CNBC, @nytimes, etc ) is about #TrumpLies, can we just reboot #USElection and move on? Please? for the sake of humanity!

#IranianProtests, but seriously!
Don't get me started on #TechNews .
