Communication and information technology commission refuted rumors that the social media messaging service, Twitter, will be blocked in the country.
Jamming Twitter goes against freedom of speech and opinion, the Commission's vice chairman Khaled Al-Kandari told KUNA on Tuesday. The Commission is an avid supporter of the freedom of expression, he stressed.
No social network will be blocked in the country, he continued; these rumors are utterly "untrue." He pointed out that all social networks function under laws and no action will be taken against any of them unless it goes through proper legal channels.
