Marketing expert suggest banning Twitter, Facebook and YouTube in Serbia during state of emergency
Krstic says that after declaring a state of emergency, thought should be given to the dangers that are potentially greater than the virus itself, first and foremost - panic
Marketing expert Nebojsa Krstic suggested today that Twitter, Facebook and YouTube social networks should be "switched off" in Serbia during the state of emergency in order to curb the panic epidemic and prevent its potentially deadly effects.
In a regular column he writes for the daily Blic, published today, Krstic says that after declaring a state of emergency, thought should be given to the dangers that are potentially greater than the virus itself, first and foremost - panic.
"So, there is a well organized group on the internet of so called 'opinion makers' who pour out poison, fake news and misinformation 24-7,"Krstic wrote, adding that "if it is necessary to disinfect the areas where infection exists, it is also necessary to carry out deratization of the public space and all those who deliberately, intentionally and in an organized manner deceive the citizens and destabilize their healthcare systems."
He said that 11,000 people had been arrested during Operation Saber (after the Djindjic assassination), and that it would now be enough to detain ten times fewer people, in an operation he calls "Disinfection and Deratization".
"Although I am a fan of social networks, I suggest that Twitter, Facebook and YouTube should be switched off in Serbia instantly, for as long as there is a state of emergency, and I'm aware that this is the only effective way to suppress the pandemic of spreading panic and prevent its potentially deadly effects," wrote Krstic.
