Twitter banned in Pakistan
Twitter has been temporarily banned across Pakistan on Sunday by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. Twitter was reportedly blocked due to "blasphemous & inflammatory content." Ironically one of the first places where the news popped up was the Micro-blogging website!
