Rabat – Twitter has suspended the account of Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani after restricting access to the account in May.
El Othmani shared a post with his followers on Facebook to explain the situation. The head of government said that the block was due to security measures taken by Twitter following heavy traffic on the account, found May 15.
El Othmani added that his team are closely following the situation until everything is back to normal.
Some Moroccan news sources, including Ya Biladi, speculated that El Othmani’s Twiter was suspended due to his series of tweets last month with the hashtag #consumer_first (in Arabic).
The suspension of the account comes on the heel of the ongoing boycott, which started on April 20. The boycott targets three companies: Sidi Ali, Afriquia gas, and Centrale Danone.
El Othmani’s cabinet has been urging Moroccans to end the boycott on Centrale Danone, given the “damaging consequences” of the campaign on farmers and their families.
