Pakistan restores Twitter

Pakistan has restored access to Twitter after blocking the popular social networking site over the posting of content it deemed an affront to Muslims, Pakistan's telecom authority said Monday. Mohammed Younis, the authority's director of public relations, said Twitter was blocked on Sunday morning because of "some material considered to be offensive to the Muslim community," but access was restored by Sunday evening. A spokesperson for Pakistan's Ministry of Information Technology told CNN that Twitter was blocked because the site did not remove links and references to a competition taking place on Facebook to post images of the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
