  1. The unbanning of Twitter is a welcome development and the statement by the US mission is soothing too. We hope that all social media platforms have learned one lesson or the other from what transpired inorder for peace, mutual respect and understanding, recognition of sovereignty of nations etc, are carefully adhered to. We must in every facet of our living learn to appreciate each other for an orderly comity of nations be it in business, government, mode of worship or otherwise.
