Twitter suspends Venezuela's British Embassy's account one day after attempted coup

A statement from the Venezuelan embassy: 

On May 1, Twitter temporarily suspended the account of the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Britain, alleging “infractions” on the conditions of this social network.

This first suspension occurred one day after the attempted coup in Venezuela, and in parallel to the suspension of numerous Twitter accounts of the Bolivarian government.

After the immediate appeal made by the Embassy, Twitter replied two days later informing that the suspension was permanent, and that there is no possibility of another appeal.

The permanent suspension of the official Twitter of the Embassy will not silence the voice of the Bolivarian Revolution in the United Kingdom.

We have a new Twitter account, @EmbaVenezUk. Please share the account among your contacts, so we can spread information about Venezuela as swiftly as possible.
