Twitter has blocked the accounts of Raul Castro and the Communist Party of Cuba

The administration of Twitter has blocked the official accounts of the Communist Party of Cuba and its leader Raul Castro. In addition, the accounts of the daughter of Castro and a number of journalists from the official Cuban media were blocked.

According to Reuters, the blockage occurred against the backdrop of an appeal to the nation of Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, in which he warned of an impending energy crisis due to US sanctions.

The representative of Twitter, commenting on the locks, referred to the company’s policy against the manipulation of public opinion, which prohibits users from artificially placing any topics in the top using a network of accounts.

Cuban Foreign Ministry called the actions of Twitter "an obvious coordinated operation to limit the statements of revolutionaries in defense of the truth."
