Venezuelan Foreign Ministry losses access to Twitter account
Written by KFAT on November 26, 2019
A spokeswoman of the Venezuelan regime said that the countryâs 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 ministryâs profile on the platform read âCaution: This account is temporarily restrictedâ and cited âunusual activityâ from the account. The spokeswoman said that the notice was finally removed by Monday night.
The Venezuelan regimeâs 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 âaccidentally caught in a spam filterâ 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 mediaâs move to stem illicit online political influence campaigns.
