Myanmar’s top military leader has had his Twitter account suspended, RFA reported.

Senior General Min Aung Hlaing had his @sgminaunghlaing account taken offline this week, nine months after his Facebook account was shuttered for hate speech against the ethnic minority.

The move came after Tun Khin, president of the Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK, raised complaints about hate speech from military accounts with Twitter executives in California, according to the report.
