Twitter temporarily suspended an official Hungarian government account on Wednesday.
Zoltan Kovacs, Hungarian State Secretary for Communication and International Relations, said in a tweet from his own account that the official Hungarian government account @AboutHungary was suspended by Twitter “without warning or explanation.”
He noted that this happened on the same day that the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, released a report on the state of democracy and the rule of law in the 27 countries of the EU.

Kovacs, who frequently defends Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration policies and “illiberal democracy” in international media, said: “It seems like the beautiful new world has finally arrived, in which the tech giants are scaling back. silence those with different opinions than the wacky liberals.
He said the Hungarian government had “taken the necessary steps and was awaiting an official explanation from Twitter”.
