The Jordanian authorities have suspended the social networking application TikTok from operating throughout the Kingdom.

The Public Security Directorate said, in a statement on its Facebook page, that the Cybercrime Unit decided to “temporarily suspend the TikTok platform from operating within the Kingdom, after misusing it and not dealing with publications that incite violence and calls for chaos.”

A number of Internet users and activists on social media reported that Internet services are operating slowly in many regions of the Kingdom.

This comes in light of the turmoil in many southern cities, and protests against the rise in fuel prices.
