Perhaps they rethought it after considering Yemen's creative tweets.
Kudos to Twitter, which didn't cave, as so many do when Islamic supremacists demand the enforcement of sharia and the blasphemy laws (restriction of free speech) under Islam.
Pakistan won't have twitter? Why should barbarians enjoy the fruits of that which they wish to destroy?
My new favorite oxymoron: "chairman of Pakistan's telecommunications." Ha!
Pakistan blocks Twitter because of tweets considered offensive to Islam Winnipeg Free Press
ISLAMABAD - The chairman of Pakistan's telecommunications authority says the government has blocked the social networking website Twitter because of material considered offensive to Islam.
Mohammad Yaseen says the website was blocked Sunday because Twitter refused to remove material related to a competition on Facebook to post images of Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet, even favourable ones, as blasphemous.
Yaseen said Facebook agreed to address Pakistan's concerns but officials have not been able to get Twitter to do the same.
Officials from Facebook and Twitter could not immediately be reached for comment.
Pakistan blocked Facebook for about two weeks in 2010 because of a similar competition.
