After Thailand’s coup, rulers want to meet with Facebook, Google, Line, to discuss censoring individual users

It’s been a little over a week since the military took over Thailand. Under the pretext of maintaining peace in the country (after more than half a year of intense political instability), the junta has not only censored old media but also found ways to filter online content. That could soon extend deeper into censorship of social media. According to Post Today, Thailand’s IT ministry plans to send a government representative to Singapore to talk to Facebook and Google, and another team to Japan to talk to NHN, the company behind the popular messaging app Line.
