Social Media Giants Working with Iran on Censorship

Aug 31, 2017

The giants in the social media world like Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube have all shown a propensity for censoring people who don’t agree with their liberal agenda for the United States. Now, they are being accused of going even further by working with the Iranian government to censor social media access in Iran to only those users and content approved by the government.

The Iranians are claiming that all three sites are agreeing to block or otherwise censor content that it considers immoral or immodest. Under the strict Sharia Law imposed by the Iranian dictatorship this would mean that most content would be censored.
