#AceNewsReport – Nov.03: The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has slammed the US-based social media website Twitter for its decision to suspend pages related to the group, saying it came under political pressure: It accused the Twitter of giving in to “political pressures”, an apparent suggestion that the decision by the US-based social media platform had been influenced by the policies of the government in Washington:
Hezbollah says the Twitter has given in to political pressure by suspending its TV channel accounts. The US Congressmen rejected to distinguish between the military and the political wings of the organizations they classify as terrorist, stressing that Twitter must not give them any chance to convey ‘hatred’.
// Al-Manar TV Lebanon “There is no place on Twitter for illegal terrorist organizations.” This was Twitter’s pretext for suspending Al-Manar TV channel’s accounts on Saturday: The social network yielded to political pressure after members of the US Congress,Republicans and Democrats, ordered it to suspend all the accounts affiliated with Hezbollah and Hamas, setting November 2 as a deadline for the action:
The US government has blacklisted Hezbollah, a popular group in Lebanon with huge political influence, while government officials and lawmakers in Washington have consistently pressured others to cut or restrict their relations with the group despite the fact that it is represented in the Lebanese government and parliament: Twitter’s decision to suspend accounts run by Al Manar came after a series of protests across Lebanon which led to the resignation of the cabinet led by Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri.
It also comes amid a rise in the popularity of Hezbollah in Lebanon and in other countries in the Middle East, especially after the group managed to successfully help the government in neighboring Syria to win a years-long battle against terrorists: A Twitter spokesman told the AFP news agency that the social media platform could not allow illegal groups to operate on its website.
However, the same news agency said specific television shows with Twitter names of Al Manar were still available on the platform on Saturday: The suspension of Al Manar’s accounts on Twitter comes as the website and other US-based social media organizations with vast global audience have repeatedly claimed that they are not influenced by the policies and decisions of the US government.
