Social network Twitter Inc has temporarily disabled its Trends section in Africa’s conflict-hit nation of Ethiopia over threats of physical harm, the company said on Friday, and was monitoring the situation.
“Inciting violence or dehumanizing people is against our rules… Given the imminent threat of physical harm, we’ve also temporarily disabled Trends in Ethiopia,” it said.
We’re monitoring the situation in Ethiopia and are focused on protecting the safety of the conversation on Twitter. Inciting violence or dehumanizing people is against our rules.
