The Taliban has campaigned on social media against the ban

Among the companies, Facebook has recently launched an emergency response team on social media to monitor the situation in Afghanistan and evaluate the use of the Taliban’s messaging app, including WhatsApp. Twitter and YouTube have tried to read between US leaders and diplomatic cables whether the US government has a real relationship with the Taliban, according to employees of the companies involved in the talks.

But even when the companies removed the Taliban accounts, the ban remained strong. Facebook this week blocked a WhatsApp account of Tababilah Mujahid’s Zabihullah Mujahid and distributed another new, active WhatsApp account to journalists.

The Taliban also said that by changing the letters in their hashtags or keywords and using encrypted apps such as Telegram and WhatsApp, they made it difficult for them to reach out and ask volunteers to translate their social media posts into multiple languages. Aziz, independent researcher.

It also seems that any website is misleading those who post content that pushes the Taliban backwards. Homsub’s Adnan Kakar said that the Homsub had removed the article after Facebook published an article this month in protest of a local newspaper column praising another Taliban founder, Mula Mohammed Omar.

We immediately received the message: “The article was removed because of the standards for dangerous individuals and organizations.” Mr. Kakar’s personal account and Hummus’s Facebook page were also banned from live broadcasts and advertising for 60 days. He said he did not receive a response when he challenged Facebook.

Adding to the problems of the forums, many new Taliban supporters have been careful not to post content that violates the company’s rules or that does not explicitly support hate speech.

On August 8, a new account for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan was unveiled on Twitter. But the video did not contain violence or images or was called directly to violence.
