Twitter suspends government-run accounts in Cuba

Twitter has suspended several accounts run by the Cuban government including those of state-run media and of officials including the daughter of Communist party leader Raul Castro. They include the account of the TV programme, Mesa Redonda, on which Mr Díaz-Canel appeared; the state-run newspaper Granma Digital; the state radio station Radio Rebelde, and the account of Raul Castro's daughter and head of the Cuban gay rights commission, Mariela Castro. Mr Díaz-Canel's account was not suspended and he used it to share the journalist union's statement.

The owners of the relevant accounts had been contacted and told the reasons for the suspensions, the company added.
