Chinese Embassy Sri Lanka twitter account suspended

Tuesday, 14 April 2020

The official twitter account of the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka @ChinaEmbSL has been suspended. Twitter said that the account has been suspended for violating the Twitter Rules.

The exact reason which led to the suspension on the basis of violating Twitter Rules is not known.
However just days earlier the Chinese Embassy twitter admin was engaged in a war of words with several twitter users.
The exchange was over the Chinese Government being accused of negligence in the spread of the coronavirus. During the heated exchange on twitter the Chinese Embassy was at times accused of using undiplomatic language.
