The Ministry of Interior on Friday directed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to temporarily block access to social media platforms — Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube and Telegram — from 11am to 3pm.

The PTA’s Twitter account mentioned “Press Release: In order to maintain public order and safety, access to certain social media applications has been restricted temporarily.”

The internet shutdown was imposed to curb any further spike in violent anti-France protests after Friday prayers.

However, this gave Twitter a chance to flood the internet with memes (obviously after it was back on).
