Twitter Warns Conservative Author His Book Violates Pakistani Law

Twitter is warning it may censor content by Western users that the social media giant deems a violation of Pakistan law.

Russian-born editor Jamie Glazov explained the situation on The Glazov Gang, an online talk show.

“Ladies and gentlemen, a very interesting world we’re entering now. Twitter has recently warned me that a post on my new book, ‘Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us,’ is in violation of a section of Pakistan’s penal code connected to Islamic blasphemy law,” Glazov said.

“Now Twitter told me it has not taken any action, for now. Phew,” he said. “They’re only writing to inform me, for now.”

Glazov explained that the alleged violations carry a potential sentence of life in prison or death, and he joked about canceling his book tour and planned vacation to the Middle Eastern country. Glazov also put the situation into broader perspective.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
