Iran Orders Social Media Sites To Store Data Inside Country

Why in the world would any social media site comply with these demands? I'm not saying Iran is extreme but you know they probably keep their social media servers in a prison cell.

Iran has given foreign messaging apps a year to move data they hold about Iranian users onto servers inside the country, prompting privacy and security concerns on social media. Iran has some of the strictest controls on internet access in the world and blocks access to social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, although many users are able to access them through widely available software.
