A nice summary by an Iranian who was jailed for his blogging in the first decade of the 2000s. He then came back from prison, into the world of social media. Very interesting read. Especially, I like this paragraph about deplatforming voices.

In a free-market economy, low-quality goods with the wrong prices are doomed to failure. Nobody gets upset when a quiet Brooklyn cafe with bad lattes and rude servers goes out of business. But opinions are not the same as material goods or services. They won’t disappear if they are unpopular or even bad. In fact, history has proven that most big ideas (and many bad ones) have been quite unpopular for a long time, and their marginal status has only strengthened them. Minority views are radicalized when they can’t be expressed and recognized.
