    Twitter will no longer suspend the official accounts of the Government of Pakistan without prior warning anymore, the government claimed on Wednesday.

    Shabahat Ali Shah, who is the CEO of the National IT Board, said he met with people working for Twitter during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the US. Shah was accompanying PM Khan too.

    “The meeting was attended by members of the Pakistani consulate too,” he said. “We wanted Twitter to listen to us and stop taking one-sided unilateral steps.”

    Shah said that he told the meeting participants that Pakistan is a responsible country and Twitter should reach out to the government first 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. They will contact the government before taking any action against any account.

    A warning will be issued to us and we will take up the said issue with the person handling the account. We want to solve problems through discussion first. “This is the era of freedom of speech and Kashmir is just one issue. Accounts shouldn’t be closed like this,” he added.

    In August, it was reported that Twitter had suspended more than 200 accounts, including official government accounts, for posting about Indian atrocities in Kashmir.

    Shah then wrote a letter to Twitter asking them to bring any ‘belligerent content’ to the government’s notice before suspending the account it was posted from.

    “We have serious concerns that suspending Twitter accounts of the government may result in an uncontrollable outburst of public on the streets that would have an imminent threat to human lives,” Shah said in the letter.

    Shah explained that he had tried to contact Twitter before too. “It was very difficult to contact them because the company isn’t registered in Pakistan so we can’t have any written agreement with them.”

    You know , if we were China .. we probably wouldn't have given a shit but we are not that strong economically and besides , this is information warfare. I am glad GOP did its job.
    It would be nice to have a twitter office in Pakistan. Anything going through India will have a lot of issues.

    Stupid GOP bureaucrats should have made an agreement and allowed twitter to set up offices over here. Register them and bring them here asap.

    if it is not registered in Pakistan get them registered as Pakistan is among the big user of this app........and if not just closed them as we have other sources as well.

    IMO it was some misunderstanding between Pakistan and Twitter which indians were taking advantage of as usual and was deceiving twitter management with wrong info, indians are famous world wide for deceiving..

    All social media companies must locate their servers within Pakistan, hosting Pakistani contents and users. We cannot allow any rat in east access to our citizens personal contents. All regulations must be done within Pakistan by Pakistani local hires of the companies.

    Relocate all management that's goes through Pakistani tweets to Pakistan and Pakistan will have it's own regional office not an office in another foreign state.

    Uhm, ya we can. You block it and abuse the hell out of it until it bends over like YouTube did. Also what is an Indian doing on a thread that solely concerns Pakistan and Pakistanis? Take your obsession somewhere else

    Does the agreement cover the ability for normal individuals to cover ongoing issues in Kashmir without being randomly banned? This has to be part of the requirement for this issue to be closed out...
