Thailand takes action against Facebook and Twitter to comply with takedown orders

In a first, Thai Digital Ministry has filed legal action – a complaint with cybercrime police –  against Facebook and Twitter for non complying with takedown orders. The ministry did not disclose details of the content or say what laws it had violated. The complaints were filed against the U.S. parent companies and not their Thai subsidiaries. Facebook and Twitter face either fine or criminal charges for not complying with the takedown orders.
