This book reveals the mysterious world of internet forums and their masked participants. It details those masked activists surfaced in the online world and how they become influential in the printed press. Their impact and their struggle for reform are traced through their old, hidden identities. The study dives deep into the world of social media in Saudi Arabia and connects it with official newspaper columns, investigating whether the Saudi woman has freedom of expression in the patriarchal society in which they live, as well as the extent and consequences of this expression.

In 2004, Twitter was launched in Saudi Arabia, and it became the preferred social media platform of Saudis thanks to its limited characters. It allowed the discussion of courageous ideas and promoted reform and moderate attitudes. This book also shows the correlation between social media and the daring subjects published in newspapers.
