Rights activist litigate Twitter for sharing his info with Saudi govt

San Francisco: Twitter has been litigated by a human rights activist for alleging accessing his personal information and sharing it with the Saudi Arabia government. In his lawsuit, Ali Al-Ahmed, the Chief of the human rights advocacy organization Institute for Gulf Affairs, claimed that Twitter didn’t have the right to reveal or share his private information under its own privacy policy and should have done more to protect his information.

The organisation names two men in the suit who were indicted last year by federal prosecutors for working as agents of the Saudi government while working for Twitter several years ago," the report said on Friday. The micro-blogging platform was yet to respond to the report. Meanwhile, Al-Ahmed claimed that his Twitter account was suspended in 2018 without explanation and was yet to be reinstated despite repeated appeals.

"While Twitter may wish to play the victim of state-sponsored espionage, Twitter's conduct in punishing the victims of this intrigue, including Mr. Al-Ahmed, tells a far different story, i.e, one of ratification, complicity, and or adoption tailored to appease a neigh beneficial owner and preserve access to a key market, the [Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," the complaint read.
