[IMPORTANT EDIT]: as stated numerous times in comments, this is fine. It is often done to protect victim's account from being further compromised by the adversary, for example for protecting their DMs, or collecting further material from their online activities. So, no need to try unsuspend his account. Thank you.

Jadi (Amirhossein Mirmirani) had 133K Twitter followers. He is a lovely computer geek and open source veteran from Tehran, Iran. He has been active educating youth for many years. He was arrested yesterday.

His account is suspended after his arrest, which is most probably due to fake reports from the cyber army. If you work at Twitter or Facebook, please help unsuspending his account which is vital for him to reach his audience and give him visibility, even when he is arrested. They want to remove his internet presence.

Instagram (suspended): https://www.instagram.com/jadijadinet/

Activists accounts are taken down to try to protect them.

Example news source supporting this is likely what happened:

I had interviewed an Iranian in the US a few months ago for a position, but he was not interested in the role we had open. There was a new opening so I looked him up, but now there was nothing. His personal site was gone, and his linkedIn vanished. Google still finds him on scholar and links to the downed page but the only way to see it is the wayback machine.

Jadi would be happy to know that he was on HN:) after getting free. One of his hobbies was selecting news on HN and translating them for non English speakers in Iran.

You are on our mind bro. Hope to see you soon in your next podcast. #woman_life_freedom

He is arrested so probably shut down to protect him

Unless I'm being obtuse, wouldn't it be right for Twitter to state that it's disabled an account to protect the user and others rather than because it violates their rules?

Funny how Twitter tolerates blatantly terrorist regimes like Iran while banning those who challenge them.

How do they justify this?

why was he arrested ?

What the fuck is this insane notion being pushed in this thread? How does having your account suspended protect you? It's probably the primary way that he can get his story out or at the very least let people know that he's alright. Authorities almost certainly have all of the relevant data that has been expunged from the public's view already. And even if they don't, it's on archive.org

Some next level doublethink going on in this thread.
