Thanks to Abel, I have come to know that my blog-kinda-thing is now blocked in Ethiopia. Yes, my blog is now competent enough to become a potential trait J. Most of my friends suspected that it is because of my tweets on #AJStream's yesterday show on the silenced freedom of speech in Ethiopia and the schemes used by the government to control everything.
Well I have collected my tweets, just for the record. See for yourself and tell me “yemeTenal weyes AyemeTenem” to be considered a threat.
This is status update of a facebook friend in Ethiopia
"I can't write, comment, navigate to group page and browse. Raila-Meles IT experts are working hard in order to break into my account and disrupt it. I am using public domain and they are monitoring everything in public domain by extorting the owners. They have all the means and materials to do whatever they want to do."
@YeEthiopiaLej @meetabel @AJStream @AJEnglish glad that information flow is uncontrollable and there are back doors even with DPI in place
@YeEthiopiaLej @meetabel @AJStream @AJEnglish no surprise that is the Telecom we know.
@africamedia_CPJ exactly I would not be surprised if the next draft law would be criminalizing anyone that watch medias other than #ETV
@meetabel @AJStream @AJEnglish Ethiopia has >90m people and has 1% IT penetration which is 900K that is not even 1/4 of the ppltn of #Addis
@universallibert @soleyana @abelpoly Prof.Berhanu was awesome :)
@universallibert @soleyana @abelpoly Nati tenananeqeh ayzoh ,enem seraye teche sebere legeba new
@meetabel @AJStream @AJEnglish They'll have to confiscate all the s.dishes that r installed in almost evry house or come up with a draft law
@soleyana @universallibert @abelpoly @endalk2006 pps twitter is like chat with serious exchange of ideas,I like, #denqoro.yesema.let.yabedal
@meetabel @AJStream along with #CPJ and #theEconomist , btw both has their sites blocked in #Ethiopia
@africamedia_CPJ there was a program on #ETV the national TV about the impact of #facebook ,showing how unhealthy it is for the society
@universallibert @abelpoly @soleyana hahahah egna muhran
@meetabel #AJStream will soon be criminalized ,@AJStream has repeatedly tried to get the gov rep on today's show.
@AJStream thankyou for the show about the media oppression in #Ethiopia
@universallibert @abelpoly @soleyana if you follow #AJStream it could essentially be an evidence that you are the big T
@AJStream more that 127 sites are blocked in Ethiopia including CPJ and theEconomist
@AJStream the law is open to interpretation to an extent that it can be used against any one that has SKYPE or any VOIP on their computer
@Anteneh73 #AJStream show is about the "draft" law that marks VOIP illegal by #EthiopianGov that has a track record abusing human right
@Anteneh73 U R saying the same thing the #Ethiopian government saying about the journalist that is it holding behind bars :)
@Anteneh73 fair to who ? I really want to know who you are referring to.
#AJStream is going to host a show about the draft law that criminalized VOIP which Shimeles Kemal outright denied two days ago.
@AJStream the spokesman denied that the law was not intended to make SKYPE illegal but still criminalizes VOIP
