The Ministry of Information and Publicity of Zimbabwe was recently blocked and banned on twitter for violating twitter rules.
They have resorted to opening up a new account, starting over all afresh again.
The new twitter account handle is @MinOfInfoZW and has started building up followers with 1 359 by the time of publishing the article.
The social media account which they had been previously running had reached a total of 94.800 followers, but as the official government mouth piece, many people are still interested in knowing government’s formal position on matters, hence there is huge expectation the account will gain traction again.
The micro blogging site allegedly closed the account for contravening or violation of Twitter rules.
