Govt of Pakistan blocks tweep for pointing out typo error

  • Government of Pakistan had mentioned Houston as Huston

ISLAMABAD – The government of Pakistan took a strong exception to Twitterati simply pointing out an error in one of its tweet.

The verified Twitter handle of the government of Pakistan shared the details about the meeting of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi with Dr Fauzia Siddiqui in November with a typo error in the tweet.

The tweet mentioned the spellings of Houston (city in Texas), as Huston which was well noted by Bilal Abbas.

Incidentally, Abbas kept a screenshot of the mistake and his correction to that effect.

The government of Pakistan’s twitter handle blocked him from following the account days after the typo barring him from any further corrections and viewing the details shared by the account.
