Mehr Nadeem, Rest of World, On Clubhouse, Saudis are speaking freely. For now.

"Clubhouse, which has erupted in popularity in Saudi Arabia recently (it’s currently the most downloaded social media app in the country’s app stores), is in a precarious position: it’s home to conversations that were previously had either in private or anonymously, online, behind blank avatars and unidentifiable usernames. Now they’re happening in what seems like the open for anyone to hear. Unlike in China or Iran, social media apps don’t usually get banned in Saudi Arabia. Instead, they are closely monitored."
