The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission has deactivated its official Twitter account after netizens discovered old undeleted tweets that allegedly belonged to its previous owner.

Screenshots of the tweets from around 2014 - largely using inappropriate language - were shared not long after MCMC's statement today urging netizens to be polite and maintain decorum when making comments on social media, particularly in the context of the emergency declaration.
