Bahraini human rights activist Sayed Yussef al-Mahafdah browses the internet on his laptop in a coffee shop in the capital Manama on January 29, 2013. Twitter's unmatched platform for public opinion is emboldening Gulf Arabs to exchange views on delicate issues in the deeply conservative region, despite strict censorship that controls old media. Muhafda was previously detained and charged with deliberately disseminating false news on Twitter with the aim of inciting violence, as this margin of freedom continues to land some tweeters in jail as authorities do not take criticism lightly.
