Digital dissidence takes a wide variety of forms in today’s mediascape, from high-profile leaks to hashtag activism. The strategic use of media technologies in contemporary social movements have been one of widely discussed and central forms of resistance that have marked the 21th century. Protestors all over the globe, from the Arab Spring revolts to Black Lives Matter, have been depicted as armed with mobile technologies. The internet has of course connected the dispersed activities of the leakers, live-streamers, hacktivists, citizen journalists, data activists, and many other figures of digital contestation.
