WhatsApp blocks channel of Spanish Podemos Party days before election

Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp unexpectedly blocked a channel belonging to the Spanish left-wing Podemos Party less than a week before the general election, sparking accusations of meddling.

Podemos argued that it used the same tools all other parties were using. “Why have they shut down only the account of Podemos and not those of other parties doing the same?”
