Reporters Without Borders

Access to Twitcam blocked

The authorities blocked access to Twitcam (http://twitcam.livestream.com/), a website that allows users to stream video live in tandem with simultaneous communication with viewers via Twitter. Bahrainis have found Twitter to be a particularly useful tool for reporting human rights violations by the security forces.

Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) was meanwhile accused of providing the monitoring technology that the Bahraini authorities have been using to spy on the emails, mobile phone conversations and text messages of dozens of human rights activists. Ahmed Al-Doseri, director of information and communications at Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, confirmed that Bahrain is using this kind of sophisticated monitoring technology (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...).
