Free Youth & Pro-Democracy Leaders' Twitter Accounts Suspended



On Thursday 5 November, Free Youth movement @freeyouth.ig and its leaders ‘Ford’ @fordtattep and ‘James’ @james_panumas announced on their social media platforms the Big Protest taking place on Sunday 8 November at 16:00, to march from Democracy Monument to the Palace and bring letters to the King, claiming to « Love Them All »!


BUT the next day, their 3 Twitter accounts were suspended by Twitter. As of today, the real reason for the suspension is unclear:

  1. Was it a massive online attack by IOs, reporting the 3 accounts at the same time?

  2. Was it a Thailand government’s request to silence Free Youth and disturb protests?

  3. Was it because of violations of Twitter’s policy?
