Was hat Twitter gegen mehr Frauenrechte in Saudi-Arabien?

twitter-censorhip„Twitter has just suspended – for the second time – two accounts dedicated to advancing women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. The account @SafeMov claimed on its bio: ‚S.A.F.E Movement is a non profit organisation against the systemic discrimination from Guardianship against women in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.‘ The person responsible for the movement, Isaac Cohen, who uses @IHWCo Twitter handle, has also been suspended. But, so far, the reason for the ban remains unclear. (…)

Both @Safemov and @IHWCo were first suspended yesterday evening. Shortly after they returned to Twitter – within a matter of hours – both accounts were suspended again. Reasons for the suspension have been speculated on by scores of people. Some have floated the idea that it may be due to the accounts tweeting with the #StopEnslavingSaudiWomen hashtag. However, this is hardly a controversial statement by itself. Others have noted that some members of the Saudi Royal Family own more shares in Twitter than Jack Dorsey, co-founder of the company. Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is Twitter’s second largest shareholder after he increased his holdings in 2015.“

Update: A Twitter spokesman says that both accounts in question are now active – and declined to comment further.
