In India, the Twitter account of the Government of Pakistan has been blocked

Pakistan’s Twitter account has been blocked in India as of Saturday noon. The reason for the move against the official Twitter handle of the Government of Pakistan has not yet been cited and it is unclear what prompted it.

As Twitter explained, it withholds content on occasion when it receives a “valid and properly scoped request from an authorized entity.”

As part of our ongoing effort to make our services available to everyone, we may, from time to time, withhold access to certain content in a particular country if we receive a valid and properly scoped request from an authorized entity. “A valid legal demand or a violation of local law(s) will be limited to the jurisdiction issuing the withholding.

There has also been no reaction from the Pakistani authorities.
