ICT scraps plan to meet Line execs in censor bid

- +

The Information and Communication Technology Ministry (ICT) has scrapped its plan to meet Line executives in Japan after finding many users of this messaging service tend to avoid texting provocative content. 

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has asked the public to avoid sending messages which flout the junta's orders.

The ICT had flagged a possible meeting with Line Corporation as part of the junta's measures to prevent people using the social network to instigate protests. After taking a closer look at the typical content, which is non-controversial, they have now decided against the idea. No word was to hand on whether the ICT still intends to contact Facebook and Google as planned.
