Twitter needs to be banned here.Chinese Embassy Twitter account locked for "dehumanisation"
Washington, Jan 21 (AP) Twitter locked the account belonging to the Chinese U.S. Embassy in Washington after a tweet stated that Uygur women in Xinjiang have been emancipated and are no longer “baby making machines.”
According to that policy, “the dehumanisation of a group of people based on their religion, caste, age, disability, serious disease, national origin, race, or ethnicity,” is prohibited.
There have been no tweets from the embassy''s account since January 8. In order to unlock the account, the embassy will have to delete the tweet.
