That’s right. Twitter bird is in the cage of Pakistani government. One never knows, what they are up to and till when.

Our IT Ministry thinks that if someone in the world create and share blasphemous content through social media sites. Then it is in the best interest of the state and people to block the site for millions of users in the country.

Last year they were trying banning Facebook for the same reasons. Shall we stop them?

PS. I just wrote to some leading tech blogs to support and thankfully TechCrunch covered it.
