A few years ago we’d view the blocking of social media sites after an attack as outrageous censorship; now we think of it as essential duty of care, to protect ourselves from threat. #facebook your house is not in order. #EasterSundayAttacksLK @globalvoices @groundviews— Ivan Sigal (@ivonotes) April 21, 2019
Rumours circulating on social media that the Red Cross building was attacked is false and wrong information. Please refrain from spreading unauthentic and false information on Social Media.— Sri Lanka Red Cross (@SLRedCross) April 21, 2019
Our prayers and support are with everyone in Sri Lanka in the wake of the horrific events today 🖤— Viber (@Viber) April 21, 2019
