Myanmar coup management imposes restrictions on internet
In the aftermath of the coup, which attracted the attention of the world, the coup plotters use various ways to prevent protests. At the beginning of these roads is the interruption of communication. According to reports, today’s internet usage in Myanmar is down 84 percent compared to averages. With the restriction, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are blocked.
It is not yet known how many restrictions the military regime, which has dealt a blow to Myanmar’s leadership, will impose on the internet. However, it is said that there have been large-scale protests in the country and therefore internet access restrictions can be imposed for a long time.
Previously, it was seen that internet and communication systems were restricted in coups and coup attempts in different countries. Myanmar was the latest example in this regard. The world is wondering what will happen after the coup in Myanmar. It is also curious what the protesters will do after the interruption of communication online.
