As a freelance reporter in his home country of Afghanistan, Mustafa Kazemi has live tweeted terrorist attacks and suicide bombings.
Fitzpatrick notes that Afghanistan is not a country known for being friendly to the press. Censorship, threats and harassment from subjects is commonplace for Kazemi, Fitzpatrick writes.
Yet Kazemi, who tweets from the Twitter handle @combatjourno, doesn’t let this stop his commitment to journalism. He continues to report on his country and build his Twitter following through engagement and interaction with his audience regardless of the dangers.
