US: Twitter locks Chinese embassy account due to "dehumanization"

Twitter said it had blocked the Chinese embassy's account in the United States for a tweet about the women of the Turkish-speaking Muslim Uighur minority that violated the company's anti-dehumanization policy.

The Chinese Embassy account, @ChineseEmbinUS, wrote on Twitter this month that the women of the Turkish-speaking Muslim Uighur minority were no longer "baby production machines." The tweet was based on a study published by the state-run China Daily, Reuters reported.


"We have taken action for the Tweet you mentioned for infringement of our policy against dehumanization, which states: We prohibit the dehumanization of people on the basis of religion"Their caste, age, disability, serious illness, origin, race or nationality," a Twitter spokesman told CNBC.

The Uighurs, a Muslim minority living in the west China, have been suppressed by Chinese government for years, according to United Nations, the United States and the United Kingdom. Uighurs are also imprisoned in controversial "reform camps."

China has repeatedly denied the mistreatment of Uighurs when the Foreign Ministry responded angrily to former Foreign Minister of the United States Mike Pompeo characterizing the policy against the Uyghurs as "genocide".

Twitter removed the tweet and replaced it with a tag stating that it is no longer available.

Twitter Terms of Service states that tweets that violate its policies will be hidden and accounts will either be locked or some functions will be temporarily restricted. Users will have to manually delete these tweets if they want to account them to be fully restored.
