When one event occurs it ripples across varied platforms to reveal other insights that were not in focus. Iran’s sanctions intertwined with social bans on media revealed the influence of globalization and the shrinking of borders in energy and communication.
It was Twitter that revealed the news to other Iranians on sanctions despite the ban on social media yet, Hassan Rouhani “Iran president takes to Twitter after nuclear deal“.
Iranian president “tweeted the agreement after a deal was reached over Iran’s nuclear program Sunday. “Rouhani retweets the State Department and British Foreign Secretary William Hague before adding his own commentary,” post USA Today.
“The nuclear deal signed on Sunday will not allow any more Iranian oil into the market, or let western energy investors into the country, but it does freeze U.S. plans for deeper cuts to Iranian crude exports, Washington says.
Iran and six world powers reached a breakthrough deal early on Sunday to curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief,” was posted in “Iran oil, energy sanctions still in force after nuclear deal: US” from CNBC.
“But U.S. and EU sanctions on Iran’s energy sector, which have prevented western energy companies from dealing with Tehran, and slashed its oil exports from 2.5 million barrels per day (bpd) to around 1 million bpd, will remain in place. In the next six months, Iran’s crude oil sales cannot increase,” a fact sheet posted by the White House on the U.S. State Department‘s website on Sunday said.”
The oil ban will “result in continuing lost sales worth an additional $4 billion per month, every month, going forward.”
The nexuses between energy, globalization and communication is poised to reveal a new dimension on proximity. The sanctions overtime will effect global energy costs, distribution and economies as energy is integral to global markets. In addition, social media connectivity will reveal the impact on the people who were once voiceless and integral to the outcome of the sanctions.
