David Thomson assure que son compte a déjà été désactivé, par le passé, de manière automatique en raison de ses contacts géolocalisés en Syrie et en Irak. C’est un responsable de Facebook qui lui aurait fourni ces explications il y a un an, assurant que c’était là « le signe que leur système de censure fonctionne », se rappelle le journaliste. « Pour moi c’est plutôt le signe que leur système de censure ne fonctionne pas et désactive complètement à l’aveuglette. ».
