President Hassan Rouhani said the digital revolution has turned social media platforms into a barometer of a state’s legitimacy.
The president made the statement at Smart Iran Summit held at Iran’s International Conference Center late Wednesday, which hosted representatives from international agencies and regional countries, including Russia, Qatar and Azerbaijan.
During his address, Rouhani said the digital revolution’s impact has not been limited to the economy. 
“Social media platforms have eased public participation in sociopolitical and cultural developments. People on social media review statesmen’s activities and rate their performance,” he said.
According to Rouhani, social media can be considered a barometer of states’ legitimacy.
“Social media platforms have facilitated fundamental developments in the fields of economy, environment and public communications,” he added.
