North Korea’s Twitter account, which started just last week, has been banned by South Korea’s state-run Communications Standards Commission because its tweets contain “illegal information,” according to South Korean National Security Law.
The banning marks a new digital front for the two embattled countries. North Korea’s official account is called @Uriminzok, loosely translated to “Our people/nation,” according to the AP. The site has racked up nearly 9,000 followers despite only tweeting 36 times.
According to reports (and an admittedly rough online-translator), most if not all of the tweets heap praise on North Korea while disparaging both the U.S. and South Korea.
