when governments (military indeed) cut Internet, bloodshed should be feared imminent. No good people rule in the dark.

تقارير عن #قطع_الاتصالات من إنترنت وهاتف في #السودان منذ 4:30 صباحاً بالتوقيت المحلّي وسط أنباء عن محاولة القيام بانقلاب عسكري. #لا_لقطع_الاتصالات، فالتعتيم يساهم في تهديد سلامة السودانيين خصوصاً خلال الأحداث الوطنية. يقيد التعتيم أيضاً حرية التعبير ويسهل ارتكاب الانتهاكات.

London-based internet monitoring firm Netblocks on FB merged platform efforts: “While such centralization ‘gives the company a unified view of users’ internet usage habits, it also makes the services vulnerable to single points of failure, Netblocks said.”
