❌ Twitter has blocked Hamas and Hezbollah accounts – ONLY in Israel
Twitter has blocked 35 out of 40 active Hamas and Hezbollah accounts, following the request of the Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan.
Gaza-based Hamas and Lebanon-based Hezbollah are Muslim terror groups both classified as terrorist organizations by Israel, the US and the European Union.
If you’re in Israel and you click on a Twitter account belonging to Hezbollah or Hamas, you can’t see it.
The Twitter accounts can still be accessed outside of Israel or by Israelis using a VPN.
It turns out that Twitter thinks they solved the problem by blocking the ability to read Hamas’s Twitter page from Israel.
The problem is that the rest of the world is still exposed to contents of terrorist organizations, through Twitter.
