Every few years, someone in the government demands that access to social media be banned because it is harmful for the country. Access to Twitter (X) has been denied due the vile propaganda against the judges and generals by the defeated opposition party PTI. Its activists are experts at disseminating false information. Unfortunately, banning it is depriving people like me from getting news from all over the world.

A few years back the government had banned You Tube for many years. The other day a retiring senator demanded that access to Facebook, Tik Tok and other platforms I wonder why he excluded TV and cinema houses, because those also contribute to moral degradation. I've just heard that he has withdrawn the demand, after serious criticism on social media. 

Even in countries where autocrats rule, people can easily get news instantly. I hope the current ban on X is lifted soon by the new government which assumes control tomorrow.
