After earlier banning Wikipedia, Flickr, Youtube & Facebook, Pakistan has now blocked Twitter.
Over the past couple of days, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) decided to block popular social networking and video-sharing websites over “offensive” content.
After blocking Facebook and Youtube, Pakistani authorities on Friday further widened the crackdown on websites with blasphemous contents by restricting access to popular social networking website Twitter.
Pakistani users were unable to log into Twitter after internet service providers blocked access to the site.
When users tried to log into site, there browsers displayed a message that said “this site is restricted.”
