UAE blocks Periscope

Periscope, mobile streaming service owned by Twitter, has been blocked in United Arab Emirates. Twitter has confirmed the restriction to The National newspaper.

Periscope is currently giving a shot to resolve the issue, said the newspaper. However, it was aware of access issues in UAE, stated Twitter.

Twitter has not divulged further details whether it was banned by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority. Twitter acquired the service for over USD100 millon in March.
