The government claimed on Wednesday that Twitter will no longer suspend the official accounts of the Government of Pakistan without notice.
National IT Board Chief Executive Shabahat Ali Shah met with people working for Twitter during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the United States. Shah also accompanied Prime Minister Khan.
He said, “We wanted Twitter to listen to us and stop taking one-sided unilateral steps.” He also stated that Pakistan is a responsible country and that Twitter must first contact the government if it wants to suspend any account. “Twitter will now monitor our accounts closely and we will give them details of some accounts too,” he remarked.
A warning will be sent to us and we will discuss the problem with the person who manages the account. We first want to solve the problems through discussion. “This is the era of freedom of speech and Kashmir is just one issue. Accounts shouldn’t be closed like this,” he added.
