TEHRAN: Iran has decided to unblock Twitter after the new communications minister started negotiations with the social-networking app to resume its services in the country.
“(Twitter) has announced that it is prepared to negotiate to resolve problems,” Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi said in an interview with the state television.
“Considering the current situation there are grounds for such negotiation and interaction. Twitter is not an immoral environment needing to be blocked,” he added.
However, there was no immediate response from Twitter to his comments.
The minister further said that the ministry of communications was also looking at ways to unblock YouTube while still censoring “immoral content” on the site.
Twitter was banned at the time of mass anti-regime protests in 2009, that followed allegations of massive rigging in the re-election of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
