Twitter Asked to Block Malicious Content Against Superior Judiciary

Pakistan Telecom Authority (PTA) has approached the top management of microblogging platform, Twitter, to immediately block/remove any malicious trends and tweets vilifying the superior judiciary.

“Twitter has particularly been informed that the presence of such content and trends do not come under the definition of freedom of expression, and therefore, must be taken down instantly as “Contempt of Court” is one of the categories that hold high priority for the Authority,” said a press release issued by PTA.
