Venezuelan Foreign Ministry losses access to Twitter account

Written by on November 26, 2019

A spokeswoman of the Venezuelan regime said that the country’s foreign ministry temporarily lost access to its Twitter account over the weekend.

On Monday, the spokeswoman pointed out that a notice that was visible on the foreign ministry’s profile on the platform read “Caution: This account is temporarily restricted” and cited “unusual activity” from the account. The spokeswoman said that the notice was finally removed by Monday night.

The Venezuelan regime’s spokeswoman explained that the platform suspension took place between late Saturday night and Sunday morning, and that the foreign ministry had alerted the social media company to its loss of access and demanded an immediate explanation. 

According to CNN, a Twitter spokesperson said that the suspension was reversed and that a notice was sent to the official account through an email. The spokesperson also said that the foreign ministry account was “accidentally caught in a spam filter” which happens  from time to time when an account tweets in a suspicious high volume.

On Twitter, political analyst Moises Nam said a possible reason could have been the social media’s move to stem illicit online political influence campaigns.
