Engadget: Twitter blocks a slew of Venezuela government accounts

Engadget: Twitter blocks a slew of Venezuela government accounts. “Venezuela has been accused of censoring Twitter as part of its bid to silence dissent, but it’s not so happy now that the shoe is on the other foot. The country’s leadership says that Twitter has suspended 180 accounts linked to the government, including radio and TV outlets in the presidential palace. While it’s not clear what prompted the move, officials are furious — President Maduro claims that Twitter blocked accounts ‘simply for being Chavistas,’ or supporters of his late predecessor Hugo Chavez.”
