Sri Lanka lifts social media ban imposed after Easter blasts

Sri Lanka has lifted a nationwide social media ban that was imposed after Easter suicide bomb attacks that killed 253 people. A government statement Tuesday said that President Maithripala Sirisena has lifted the ban that blocked Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube and other popular sites. It asked the public to ’act in a responsible manner’ on social media.

I wonder how many victims stories weren't heard. I wonder how many people could not receive family support through Facebook. I wonder how many people died without messaging a final goodbye to their loved ones in different countries. Censorship is never the answer.
