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