Twitter has temporarily suspended Hungarian government account ‘without warning or explanation,’ cabinet official claims

Twitter on Wednesday temporarily suspended an official account of the Hungarian government.

Hungary’s Minister of State for International Communications and Relations Zoltan Kovacs said in a tweet from his own account that the Hungarian government’s official account, @AboutHungary, was suspended “without warning or explanation” by Twitter.

He said that it happened on the same day that the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, published a report on the state of democracy and the rule of law in all 27 countries of the European Union.

Kovacs, who often defends Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration policies and his “enlightened democracy” in international media, said, “It seems that the beautiful new world has finally arrived, with tech giants who are silent who hold different opinions. Are. Liberals Liberals. ”

He added that the Hungarian government “has taken the necessary steps and is awaiting official clarification from Twitter.”

After the account was reactivated, @Aoutoutungary confirmed: “This account was actually suspended without warning or explanation. This has apparently been restored now – even without explanation. ”

Another Twitter account, @RMXnews, which is related to the government-backed media publication, was also suspended with the same notice and not yet reinstated.
